1. The information in this section is freely drawn from the exceptional work of Sir John Whitmore, a colleague of mine, and David Hemery, an Olympic gold medalist. John Whitmore’s excellent book Coaching for Performance, written some fifteen years ago, covers in much more detail some of what I summarize here. David Hemery has recently put together an extremely useful book titled How to Help Children Find the Champion Within Themselves. It is written for parents, teachers, and coaches who want to learn how to ask better questions and grow and develop the children under their care. Another excellent book is Susan Scott’s Fierce Conversations.
