**Discover the power of coaching through an entertaining and lively story that will develop the skills and understanding of how to coach effectively.**
In this groundbreaking new approach to learning how to coach, join Alice on an adventure as she learns the fundamental principles of personal and business coaching. Meet a host of fanciful characters who will help you understand how to listen, how to ask questions effectively and how to have a coaching conversation from start to finish.
Adventures in Coaching introduces Coaching as an approach for managing people, improving performance and solving problems. Research shows that learning is often better retained when made fun and stimulating. This book delivers the most rigorous and advanced textbook coaching theory, including the GROW model, in a uniquely engaging and mesmerising manner. The structure and sequence of the material is based on a tried and tested progression that the author has refined through his training and workshops with hundreds of people.
The book is brought to life through relevant coaching conversations and practical examples as Alice puts her learning into practice.
“Why are you talking about me in the third person, Ben? I’m right here.”
“Alice! Hello. I’m just introducing the book.”
“Have you said that I’m the star of the story?”
“Of course, Alice.”
“Ben, can I introduce Rita and Ronald?”
“Er… well… I’m not sure we should start with talking animals, this is a serious book.”
“Of course we should. Rita is a turtle who is an expert coach and she taught Ronald and I how to coach. Oh, and Ronald is a fish!”
“Thank you, Alice!”
Coaching is brought to life when Alice is faced with some tough coaching conversations and she applies her new learning to the clients she works with. Both new and existing coaches, as well as managers and leaders, will improve their skills of listening, asking questions and exploring ideas.
