Book Description

May 30, 2012 1845908007 978-1845908003
The Five-Minute Coach offers a simple, step by step guide to how to coach quickly and effortlessly and get amazingly better results at work. Short, punchy and easy to read, the user can swiftly learn this innovative and effective tool for improving performance.

Designed for leaders, managers and supervisors, in any setting, The Five-Minute Coach is a ground-breaking approach to coaching on the job. It creates significant performance improvements, while improving job satisfaction for manager and team member alike. This approach to coaching has been developed by the authors and used in organizations across the board large and small, private and public, with adults and teens, and across a variety of voluntary and community groups. Professional coaches have also adopted this system in their work.

The book leads the reader through this deceptively simple process which changes thinking about how to work with others. Leaders no longer need to have all the answers. They benefit from true delegation. They uncover the talent and resources of others. They free up time for themselves--time to think strategically and to be more proactive, creative and innovative. With its focus on outcome-thinking, effective action planning and motivating people to take action, this book offers clear steps, practical examples and tips. It all adds up to a very practical way to improve performance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Recommended May 8, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of the challenges of Clean Language is that it has a lot of moving parts and can get quite deep, quickly. The beauty of this book is that it dramatically eases the learning curve and creates a practical, effective application of Clean Language that's simple - anyone can use the tools in this book. Further, the authors accomplish this without losing any of the powerful impact that Clean is known for. The book is step by step with thorough, clear examples, and addresses common issues and objections so the reader feels prepared and ready to go. Another boon of the book is that it offers ways to use the tools in many applications outside of a complete coaching process - it's great for teachers, managers, sales people ... really anyone who wants a way of working with others that allows the other person to learn and grow according to THEIR best way of doing things.

The topic is relevant, the examples realistic, the method is systematic, the repetition drills the concepts in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Discover the true value of this book July 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
These authors are exemplary exponents of their craft and there is much to learn from them. Whether you make The Five-Minute Coach your coaching method of choice or you use it as an add-on to your existing way of coaching you will be astounded by the results. And you'll make even more of a contribution if you integrate clean questions into your everyday conversations so that asking them becomes a natural way of supporting people to trust their own counsel. It is only then that you will discover the true value of this book.
Penny Tompkins, co-author of Metaphors in Mind: Transformation through Symbolic Modelling
