Coaching is a creative partnership between two people that inspires new thinking and leads to change.
Typically in the coaching world, professional coaches refer to the coach and coachee as the two key people in the relationship and the client as a customer who holds the purse strings in an organisation. In this book, I've deliberately chosen the alternative word client for the person being coached to give you a stronger distinction between the two key players involved.
I wrote this book for readers interested in the role of the coach. Yet in every example, the client can be you, so play with the exercises to coach yourself as well as others. Whatever made you pick up this book, you're going to discover more about yourself and others. Get ready to open new doors and explore the fascinating world of being human through the coaching relationship.
My aim in every chapter of this book is to cut through any jargon. Top-quality coaching needs to be accessible to all and to that end, I offer practical and relevant tools for you to make your own.
