The book is laid out in three parts. The first section goes into the fundamentals of Co-Active coaching. They discuss the Co-Active (or collaborative) coaching model and the coach client relationship.
Part two goes deals with the components of coaching: Listening, Intuition, Curiosity, Moving forward and deeper and Self-Management. These are the coaching skills and techniques you can develop and/or improve. I believe most coaches have the propensity to be skilled in these areas, but here is some sound practical advice on how to improve these skills and specific ways to use them in the coaching process.
Part three deals with Co-Active coaching principles and practices. Putting parts one and two into practice by going deeper into the theory and using specific examples to illustrate the points.
Then there is what might be the most valuable part of the book - the Coach's Toolkit. The toolkit is an extremely valuable resource containing forms and exercises that any coach can put to great use in their business. There are specific exercises, client interview forms, planning checklist, client profile and many, many other forms.
In addition there is a CD which has two practice coaching session in audio format as well as all the forms from the Coach's Toolkit in PDF format.
If you are serious about your coaching business, this is a wonderful resource that will save you time and money in running your business. It is also a very handy reference resource to refresh and improve your skills.
It's never about you...it is always about them.
The clients are "naturally creative, resourceful, and whole and capable of finding the answers they need." The magic is in asking the questions, listening, managing process, and, in a term that truly captures the book, "dancing in the moment."
The book also includes a CD that includes audio coaching sessions as well as a number of PDF files that reproduce The Coach's Toolkit. An unexpected bonus.
