Summary

Our strengths can become our weaknesses. Our traits and habitual behaviors can become traps. In each chapter of The Coach's Casebook the listener follows a skilled coach working with a client who is struggling with one of the 12 traits that every coach will face in their coaching work - traits such as people pleasing, perfectionism, impostor syndrome, performance anxiety, and procrastination.   

In each of the case studies in The Coach's Casebook, the coach shares their emotions, their thought processes and their reflections from coaching supervision as they try to understand the psychological origins of these behaviors and to work out how to help their client. This book is a great book for leadership development and has been used extensively for executive leadership for results but is above all designed to help you improve your coaching practice. It gives you practical, tried and tested techniques that you can use today to improve your coaching habits and coaching practice to help your clients to change the habits of a lifetime.

Great book but would benefit from chapter titles

Would benefit from having the chapter titles in the audiobook app. It was frustrating trying to go between different sections.

Great stories from inspiring people

Great to hear these coaching tips directly from Geoff and Kim - two coaches I admire massively. Essential listening for any coaches in any field.

Self-reflection in book form!!

This book was eye-opening for me in many ways as I could identify almost all the traits mentioned in myself. The audio version is a godsend as it helps take on the information in a slower more mindful way.

Beautifully simple. Simply beautiful.

I bought this book but didn’t make the time to read it. I’ve listened to it while on holiday and I think it’s really good. I hope they’ll do another volume.

Audible version is excellent

I enjoyed listening to the coaches go through each case study, supervision and interview for the chapters - this structure worked well. I am glad I got the audible version though as I fear I may have skimmed some of the content. Useful concepts, coaching tips and tools.

Really good examples

I love the way that this audio has been formatted with the coach coaching examples and the coach being supervised and how the coach identifies how they can improve in their coaching too! Goes really deep into the structure of coaching.

Left powerfull impression on me

Individual casestudies were very useful to me. They led me to greater understanding of the theory behind it and gave me motivation and ideas of how to apply some of it in everyday work. Thanks!

A must for coaches everywhere

If you consider yourself a coach, you need to listen to this. Geoff Watts and Kim Morgan tell their story here in an engaging way and their are so many learning points I had to start my own notes while I listened! Loved it

psychobabble, bad recording quality

little value here unless you're thinking about becoming a family therapist. No relationship world examples the ones they present seem fake. coaching is not therapy.
