Publisher's Summary

Now in a new, expanded, and fully revised third edition, this best-selling audio handbook will help you learn the skills, and the art, of good coaching, and realise its enormous value in unlocking people's potential to maximize their own performance.

This edition includes additional chapters on incorporating meaning and purpose into work and goal-setting, a spiritual approach to coaching, and a final section on "Coaching the Organisations' Culture". Adopted by many of the world's major corporations, this work also argues for using questions, rather than instructions and commands, and following the GROW sequence - Goals, Reality, Options, Will - to generate prompt action and peak performance. It explores the dynamics of team development, and it positions coaching as the essential team-leadership skill.

    "Glad I only bought the book byte"

    I have read many great reviews of this book online, bought the 12min version by accident but am extremely glad I didn't spend anymore. Very dry cliched material, if you are looking for a book on management and coaching staff look at "First, break all the rules" by Marcus Buckingham

    "Few Actionable Points"

    The source book is a classic on making a positive difference to people's lives. For such a short summary, there is far too much introduction and padding. These summaries need to be short, sharp, gritty, and actionable. Save your money or buy the book... better still the publisher should provide the full version of the text as an audio book.

    "Not very clear"

    It wasn't clear that what your buying is a clip of the book! Total waste of money!

    "only ten minutes long!"
    What would have made Coaching for Performance better?

    it would probably be good if it was a whole book but it's just an advert for buying the book! What a rip off!


    Has Coaching for Performance put you off other books in this genre?

    No

    "Not worth the effort"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I guess maybe I didn't read the description properly - the bookbyte format was totally useless to me. I don't want to hear a short summary!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Coaching for Performance?

    it was too short, not too long

    "Too short"

    I was hoping for more. 14 minutes is far too short I thought I was getting more. In the 14 minute time frame you don’t have enough to begin.
