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

5.0 out of 5 stars A True Breakthrough In Coaching
By Wendy Axelrod, Executive Coach, Mentor, Author on June 10, 2020
Reynolds encourages us to go deep, in order to elevate our coaching skills. She has provided us the key components of crucial coaching practices that have not been explored in such depth previously—a true breakthrough for the field of coaching. Given her 25 years of coaching and developing coaches, she has made these coaching steps actionable with clarifying descriptions and true-life examples. Every segment is packed with nuggets of wisdom and insight to help build skills in reflective inquiry.

With decades of both coaching and mentoring in corporate settings, I appreciate her focus that masterful coaches are as always learning and improving. She supports us to overcome some natural tendencies such as not wanting the client to be in discomfort, or adding our own meaning to what they have expressed. She encourages us to believe in our client’s own resourcefulness and potential. The coach’s role is to thoughtfully help open their perspectives in order to clear obstacles and see their own best path forward. This is a wonderful guide for taking coaching skills to the next level; I am most grateful to Reynolds for writing it.
