There are some books that really make a contribution to the body of knowledge of the subject. This book is one of those. It is objective and research based while also drawing on the experiences of the authors and others in such a way that is not boringly academic at all. It grabs ones interest and holds it with very clear readable language.’

Sir John Whitmore, author of Coaching for Performance [originator of the GROW model]

What makes this book so valuable is its educational, practical and international focus. I applaud the authors for revealing the inner workings of their executive coaching model so that practitioners and prospective clients alike may learn and better grasp the essence of this remarkable intervention known as executive coaching.’

Wendy Johnson, President and CEO, Worldwide Association of Business Coaches (WABC)

It is refreshing to find such a practical and structured guide. It is also encouraging to see a new model being explored beyond the GROW model which builds on the tried and tested thinking and enhances it.

Brian Wishart, European Head of Organizational Development, BP Group

A practical, usable manual which benefited me greatly despite having many years of Executive Coaching experience. The content is insightful and original and has given me many new ideas to improve upon my skills and approach.’

Roger Minton, formerly HR Director, House of Fraser Retail Ltd

I liked this book very much – it is a highly practical and well-presented guide to the art and science of executive coaching.’
