A Solid Effort!
on April 26, 2001
A coach is not just out on the athletic field praising your eight-year-old's big score. Today, coaches are common in executive offices, pumping up professional skills from public speaking to public relations. As a consultant to business leaders and politicians, Debra A. Benton shares her insights into business coaching to hone professional skills. She helps prepare you to hire and work with a professional coach. If you would rather save the money and the time by teaching yourself, you can follow her sections on self-coaching. In these chapters, she delves a little more deeply into both psychological motivation and professional technique. Her book is filled with wit and wisdom on a variety of topics, including attitude, mindset, discipline, achievement, perception, physical cues, and emotional energy. We [...] recommend this book to those who want a boost - whether hired by the hour or self-driven - in their work-related skills.
