Excerpts from the back cover:
Why do people have a desire to work with a coach? Simply said they want to create an end state, and have found that they get in their own way.
Working with a coach is a courageous act. Inherent in the request for coaching is a yearning to see and to remove obstacles. You as the coach play a pivotal role. You will be asked to speak to those obstacles – to poke at places of fear and insecurities, all in the service of the client.
How you relate to your client is paramount. After all, its not all fun and games you are sharing, you are invoking inquiry and challenging the client’s assumptions. Looks like fertile ground for conflict unless your client relationship is one of understanding and respect.
How do you relate to your client? This book provides a method of recognizing your values, and those of your client. By recognizing values, becoming related is a natural product. It paves the way for your client to reach outside the comfort zone and create results.
Your presence, witnessing, and listening of your client’s values brings the client meaning. Are you prepared for such a task? You can provide coaching or you can provide meaningful coaching. The choice is yours.
The Book: Meaningful Coaching
For those of you who coach others, this book will support you in relating to your clients by customizing your coaching to their values.
