EBOOK  New Coach  Reflections from a Learning Journey

"Lis Paice's positivity shines through on every page of this book. She writes in a beautifully simple and accessible style. The book will be a tremendous introduction for those setting out on the same path as new coaches, or for more experienced coaches who want to compare their journey with hers." Dr John Launer, Honorary Consultant and Senior Clinical Lecturer at the Tavistock Clinic, London, UK "I love this book. I've not seen a book before that uses the experience of the one who is learning rather than just telling you how to do it. It will be so useful in taking away the inevitable anxiety that comes when you are about to learn a new skill - and learn it in public. The author's honesty about her own pitfalls will help you know what to expect, and the light bulb moments that she has as she progresses will undoubtedly light up the occasional bulb for you too. It might be a book about learning, but it's also a book that outlines the skills of coaching in a whole new way." Jenny Firth-Cozens, Imperial College London, UK "This is a marvellous record of the journey recorded by a senior doctor-educationalist as she strived to gain the skills of a coach. Any new coach will find it difficult to put down as it will resonate with many of their own first reflections. She is open about her mistakes from the start. On her first day of coach training she had a moment of kairos, and she set her goal to train to the highest level, which she continues to do." Dr Rebecca Viney, Coaching and Mentoring Lead, London Deanery, UK "There are many books on coaching that give advice on what coaches should do. This book is different. Describing herself as a 'self-critical learner', Liz traces her journey into becoming a coach, telling a uniquely honest story, 'warts and all' that all of us can learn from. This is like reading someone's personal, reflective diary, rather than a recipe book on 'how to coach'. The result is both engaging and highly illuminating." David E Gray, Professor of Leadership and Organisational Behaviour, University of Greenwich, UK You can't summarize if you haven't been listening. Coach and client share the encounter, not the experience. The better you get, the less you say. The client is the hero, not the coach. Coaching is a skill for life. This frank account of one leader's journey to become a coach is a must have for beginner coaches. It will strike a chord with anyone who has been on a similar journey or has just begun professional training, discovering the disappointments, triumphs and surprises of learning to coach and coming to their own personal insights. Lis Paice's easy conversational style and rich supply of real-life examples make this an enjoyable read even for the absolute beginner. The questions she raises about coaching will also stimulate reflection for experienced coaches, trainers and supervisors. Topics include: What coaching is all about How coaching differs from other ways of helping What the role of the coach entails Getting to grips with the principles of coaching; Learning by experience why the rules matter Trying out different tools and techniques Finding ways of helping the client to new perspectives and insights Avoiding complacency

Coaching for Careers  A practical guide for coaches

How can coaches help clients navigate the changing world of work? This book offers a step-by-step, practical guide to running a complete career coaching programme: assessing the present; looking at motivation, skills and ‘personal brand’; writing the most powerful CV/résumé; getting through a job interview or assessment centre successfully; and negotiating terms for a new job. Career coaching has never been needed more now that jobs for life have disappeared, being made redundant is common, the ‘gig economy’ is here to stay, and young people often must start in unpaid roles. The principles of career coaching are much the same whether you are a professional executive coach or a volunteer working for a charity whose aim is to get people back into work. But how do you do it most effectively? The focus must be on the whole career coaching cycle and building a holistic understanding of how a client’s personal and professional life has influenced the person they are today, who they want to be, and how to set successful goals. Important reading for any coach who wants to understand and improve their career coaching. “This is a must-have resource for all coaches to support clients in career and job transition.” Terry H. Hildebrandt, PhD, MCC, MCEC, Director of Evidence Based Coaching, Fielding Graduate University, USA “The clearest, wisest guide I have yet read on coaching towards success in the complex world of work.” Sarah Gillett CMG CVO, Former ambassador, and coach in-training “Jenny continues to set the bench mark for what it means to be a great coach. An inspiring read for anyone interested in coaching.” Kate Stephens, CEO, Smart Works Charity “The wealth of Jenny’s own experience and the depth of her expertise gives her the authority to teach us all and we are grateful to her for the extent of our continued learning.” Catherine Devitt CEO, Meyler Campbell “This is far more than a superbly comprehensive set of tools and techniques for career coaching – although it definitely is that. This is a masterful narration of the whole story of career coaching at a much deeper level.” Jane Cook, Head of Leadership and Coaching, Linden Learning “An experiential step-by-step guide to working with clients who are exploring real issues around their work, career, and life, to bring out their best selves. One of the best in furthering your learning and growth as a coach.” Diane Brennan, DBH, MCC, Director of Leadership & Organizational Development University of Arizona and Past President of the International Coach Federation (2008) “A thorough overview of the skills and knowledge required by career coaches. This not only defines the coach’s professional toolkit, but reveals the very best practice in career coaching.” John Lees, author of How to Get a Job You Love

Ebook  Coaching and Trauma  From Surviving to Thriving

Why do coaches need to understand trauma? This book highlights the role coaches must play – and how it differs to psychotherapists – in supporting clients with trauma. A role that both enhances the coach's skills and supports their clients’ personal development. Trauma isn’t an event, it is a lasting internal process through which the ‘here and now’ of life experience is affected by the ‘there and then’ of traumatising experience. Vaughan Smith provides a way to understand the internal process that affects all aspects of our physical and mental wellbeing. While providing an introduction to the theory of trauma, the main focus is on practical application within the context of coaching; distilling Franz Ruppert's theory of the surviving self and the healthy self. Written for practitioners, this important text raises trauma awareness, addresses the ‘what if?’ questions many coaches have and provides a clear framework for implementation. Rarely do coaching or organisational development books address the very prevalent issue of trauma and yet this is something every coach will come across in their practice. “This book busts the myth that trauma has nothing to do with coaching, while underlining clearly how coaches can maintain appropriate boundaries. A real gift to the profession and absolutely essential reading for any coaching supervisor.” Paul Heardman, Leadership Coach and Coaching Supervisor “A clear, enlightening, practical book that is well-grounded in theory.” Carolyn Mumby, Executive and Personal Coach-Therapist, Supervisor and Facilitator, Chair BACP Coaching Division “This is a book that coaching has been missing. From the first pages it’s clear that we are in safe hands as Julia guides us through a topic that is sadly still taboo for many coaches.” Helen Sieroda, Director Wise Goose School of Coaching “Necessary reading for anyone serious about coaching. It’s a profound book, and because it goes deep, it reveals fertile possibilities. It touches, evokes and - with great care - honours our necessary inventiveness.” Jonathan Gosling, Emeritus Professor of Leadership, Exeter University and co-founder of CoachingOurselves.com "This book should interest therapists and coaches. If not, they should ask themselves why. It is a magnificent fusion of Julia's career as a clinician, manager, management consultant, therapist, coach and author.” Brian Lewis, Bellettes Bay Company, Tasmania, Australia “Essential reading for coaching supervisors and coaches. It has transformed my practice." Dr Louise Sheppard, Coaching Supervisor and Executive Coach at Praesta Partners LLP “A must for anyone wanting to take their coaching to another level.” Shirley Greenaway, Executive Coach, Head of Coaching at Management Futures

Creating A Coaching Culture

"Creating a Coaching Culture provides a rich source of knowledge, guidance and experience for anybody involved in the important business of helping drive coaching in organisations. It builds on the Hawkins and Smith seven-step model that we have used to guide our thinking and actions at Ernst & Young. After reading the book I take away a host of ideas and best practice that I will use in the business." Ian Paterson, Ernst & Young LLP and MD, EMCC UK "Peter Hawkins draws on 30 years of international organizational change consultancy in Creating a Coaching Culture. He offers seven steps, numerous case studies, and his real world experience. Reading this book, it is easy to pinpoint how far along one's organization has moved towards developing a sustainable coaching culture and what the next steps are. Like Peter's other books, Creating a Coaching Culture sits on my desk, not my bookshelf, because of its usefulness, depth of thought, and Peter's expertise." Catherine Carr, doctoral candidate in Leadership Development and Executive Coaching, Carr & Associates leadership coaching "The book clearly outlines why the creation of a coaching culture is critical to the success of any organisation. More importantly it describes the practical steps required to achieve this success and how you can measure progress and benefits along the journey." Richard King, Serial NED and Coach, former Deputy Managing Partner for Ernst and Young "In recent years, the concepts of leadership culture and coaching culture have become increasingly intertwined, to the extent that achieving a coaching culture is a common aspiration for organizations of all sizes ... Peter Hawkins brings the topic up to date, using multiple case studies and an analytical approach that clarifies the challenges and how to address them." David Clutterbuck, Visiting Professor, Oxford Brookes & Sheffield Hallam Universities, UK "In this book Peter Hawkins brings together his extensive experience as a business leader, coach, consultant and leadership developer to provide a comprehensive handbook on how to help people, teams and organisational stakeholders learn through the practice of coaching. It will be of benefit not only to those engaged in the people development professions, but also managers and leaders who are looking to enhance the value and potential contribution of their people." Hilary Lines PhD, Executive and Team Coach, UK "This is an eloquently written text that is recommended reading for coaches and mentors working in large organizations, for human resource managers and corporate management teams." EMCC's International Journal How do we create a coaching culture? What will be the benefits for all parties? How can we link it to the performance of our business? How do we calculate the return on investment? How do we make it sustainable? Organizations are investing large sums of money in employing external and internal coaching and are increasingly under pressure to show a demonstrable return on this investment. In this much-needed book, Hawkins gives a well researched and practical answer to the whole question of how you create a 'coaching culture' and provides a step-by step guide to implementing this change. The book includes advice for both coaches and HR professionals on: Establishing the right integrated mix of coaching by line managers, internal specialized coaches and external coaches Combining individual and team coaching and connect both to the organizational change agenda Harvesting the organizational learning from the thousands of coaching conversations A coaching style becoming a way of relating internally and externally to all the organization's stakeholders Case studies show how a wide range of international organizations have developed successful coaching strategies to increase the effectiveness of their businesses. This book will provide you with valuable insights whether you are a coach, an organization consultant, an HR professional or a Chief Executive.

Beyond Goals

What is there in developmental relationships beyond setting and striving to achieve goals? The presence of goals in coaching and mentoring programs has gone largely unquestioned, yet evidence is growing that the standard prescription of SMART, challenging goals is not always appropriate - and even potentially dangerous - in the context of a complex and rapidly changing world. Beyond Goals advances standard goal-setting theory by bringing together cutting-edge perspectives from leaders in coaching and mentoring. From psychology to neuroscience, from chaos theory to social network theory, the contributors offer diverse and compelling insights into both the advantages and limitations of goal pursuit. The result is a more nuanced understanding of goals, with the possibility for practitioners to bring greater impact and sophistication to their client engagements. The implications of this reassessment are substantial for all those practicing as coaches and mentors, or managing coaching or mentoring initiatives in organizations.
