Amir makes heavy use of true stories from his own life and coaching practice. This book is succinct, clear, and broken up into very readable teachings. If it were not so I may not have finished it myself and I certainly wouldn't gift it to others who's time and attention I value.
Coaching is an art, not a series of steps to be memorized and regurgitated. In the same way that a painter goos to the museum and becomes newly inspired to create so does this book provide inspiration for coaches to more deeply access their own unique style of creation.
This takes deep coaching concepts and puts it into real world application through story and example. Thank you Amir for literally changing my world one chapter at a time.
He offers unique "seeming paradoxes" that somehow make perfect sense. When one reads about things like slowing down, holding silence, and knowing nothing, it cognitively seems too passive, yet my body and my mind soften and resonated with these concepts as great insights and powerful coaching tools. I use them with clients now and they are having great results!
I highly recommend this book to coaches, and really anyone who wants to create powerful change. This book is such an engaging read. It's as if Amir is in your living room enthusiastically sharing his wisdom intending to truly make a difference for you and your clients! When coaches apply these concepts, they will up their game and fill their practices. When people apply these concepts they will create powerful life results. No marketing hype, no inauthenticity, just solid value. Get this book!
2. A coach who has been doing it for a while and has some experience
3. A masterful coach who already has a full client list and a thriving business...
So if you fit in to one of those 3 categories, BUY THIS BOOK!
There are limitless amounts of practically useful and transformative ideas and actions that Amir provides here. His powerful storytelling, vulnerability and authenticity, bold but supportive style and heart-centered approach are things that all coaches (myself included) should focus on cultivating. I feel like this book gives us tremendous direction in doing so.
I was especially impacted by Chapter 8 "Tell a Powerful Story" where Amir gets SUPER real about his own personal struggles and how that is a tremendously valuable and authentic way to build deep rapport with our clients.
Also, Chapter 15 "Don't Decide Their Breakthroughs" and Chapter 21 "Powerful Coaching in Silence" were beautifully complimentary and a wonderful reminder not to take away our clients power by making it about us or filling in the gaps.
I found myself not being able to go more than a page or two without highlighting something so this review could pour on for days but I'll sum it up this way. In a strong, real world, no-nonsense, loving and completely relatable way, Amir has challenged us to go back to basics where serving, connecting, and being present beat out tactics, internet marketing, and trickery.
That level of authenticity is what made this a powerful, and more importantly, useful read for me.
Although this book would clearly benefit a new coach on their journey, as a professional coach and seasoned entrepreneur, it definitely challenged and inspired me to take some new actions with the clients I serve.
Amir adds his own insight and experience to the conversation while giving you an inside look at being coached using these important principles as well.
If you haven't read The Prosperous Coach there's some valuable advice here that will be new too many coaches and a refresher for those familiar with the book. Either way a worthwhile read.
