Editorial Reviews


"Anyone who can strip away the mystery of coaching and show it as an everyday way of connecting with other humans is a hero in my books. Marcia Reynolds is that person. You should read Coach the Person so you can change people's lives"
--Michael Bungay Stanier, author of the WSJ bestseller The Coaching Habit

"Marcia, in her straightforward, brilliantly articulate way, navigatesus to simplicity from the far side of complexity in her definitive guide to breakthrough coaching."
--Madeleine Homan Blanchard, MCC, MSc, cofounder of Coaching Services, The Ken Blanchard Companies

"Dr. Reynolds provokes the reader to explore ways of partnering with clients and coaching beyond the 'sacred cows' and rigidly prescribedquestioning techniques. She also does a great service to the professionby elevating the conversation above conflicting coaching schools andcults, urging us to refocus again on the human being we partner with."
--Konstantin Korotov, PhD, Professor of Organizational Behavior, ESMT Berlin

"Dr. Reynolds once again gives great guidance and tools based on years ofwork with the human mind. She provides a framework for self-discoverywhere participants partner with coaches in their journey to bettermaneuver through problems to ultimately reach their potential."
--Krista Endsley, Software CEO and Board Member, MemberSuites, Inc.

"There is far more to coaching than asking good questions--and Dr. Reynolds brilliantly outlines what it takes to move your coaching from good to great in her newest book, Coach the Person, Not the Problem. She looks at the science of coaching and the proven practices that lead to breakthroughs in thinking and lasting personal change. Packed with tips, tools, and case studies, this easy-to-use guide will become an essential resource for teachers and coaches."
--Deb Giffen, Director Custom Programs, Wharton Executive Education
