Selected by Ready to Manage as one of the Top 20 Best Books on Coaching and Mentoring for 2012
To stay on top, companies need to do more than just tread water—they need to grow. And that means that their employees need to develop and improve their skills at the same pace. More than ever, managers are being encouraged to improve employee performance through effective coaching, but so few of them have the time—or the knowledge—it takes to do it successfully. Brian Emerson and Ann Loehr have spent years showing some of the country’s top companies how to develop their most promising employees. Now in this helpful manual they guide managers through every step of the coaching process, from problem solving to developing accountability. Readers will discover:
the top 10 tips every manager should know before he starts to coach • how to handle difficult conversations, conflicting priorities, and problem team members • how to hold follow-up meetings after goals and priorities have been set • sample questions they can adapt to various situations • examples of common problems and how they can use coaching to address them.
Clear, practical and straightforward, this is an invaluable tool that will help all leaders coach employees, colleagues, and themselves to excellence.

After experiencing different coaching styles myself, I found this book refreshing. It allowed me to look at different aspects of managing people and apply the tips and tools to different employees' needs and work situations. For example, I liked the authors' suggestions for coaching in 11 different work situations. Very practical and realistic! Give this coaching book a try - it's definitely worth the read!
The authors begin with their Success Equation, which explains why coaching is so important, then use case studies to define when to coach and when not to coach. They offer step-by-step problem-solving techniques and provide questions to ask in a variety of work situations
