As books with multiple authors go, this is the best I've read: the editing and narrative is consistent, and the chapters flow and transition gracefully. On Becoming a Leadership Coach reads well cover-to-cover, and the chapters stand alone and can be revisited as specific concerns or interest arise in you.
Though I enjoyed all of the sections, I should share some stand-outs:
* the history of coaching was the most thorough and succinct I've read. The profile of coaching has really been raised on the last several years among managers and leaders, but there are still many people who would benefit from this work that are not aware of its existence. There are so many great passages that could be shared with leaders that would help them locate themselves, and see how coaching might give them leverage to reach their next stretch goal.
* the exploration of what leadership is, the survey of this vast landscape, and no clear request (or insist) to subscribe to a single definition or methodology. Though I am not a Georgetown Certified Leadership Coach, their approach to "going meta" on coach training is itself one of the desired outcomes of coaching: taking multiple perspectives. The examples offered and rich and useful, and the invitation is "there is so much more: explore"
* the value of using Somatics in your coaching, weaved through several chapters.
* insights about using team coaching.
I have added this to my list of resources for coaches and leaders, and look forward to sharing it for years to come.
