This book will re-define the true meaning of positive thinking for the 21st century and show that there is more to it then we know. The author, Neil Francis, will explain that it is actually our motivating ability that enables us to create new possibilities. It is then up to each individual to decide which opportunities are achievable and realistic and – therefore – worth seizing. Positive Thinking explores the ways of creating new possibilities so that you make the right decisions to live a more balanced, meaningful and contented life Author: Neil Francis

The Coaching Book

Coaching is an art, but it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an  answer or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. Emotional intelligence can help leaders and coaches recognize how attitudes – both their own and those of the people they coach –prevent individuals from reaching their potential. 

In this practical and inspiring book, EQ qualified trainer and coach Nicole Soames teaches you how to develop a coaching mind-set, recognize who and when you should coach, adopt a disciplines approach to coaching, learn how to manage the coaching conversation and give and receive feedback so that you can embed new ways of working. This is a fresh and innovative take on the traditional, how-to coaching manual.

Positive Male Mind

Mental health problems affect both men and women, in fact, every one in four of us. However, it has been widely accepted for some time that men are much less likely to seek help from a doctor or mental health specialist, as they traditionally expect themselves to be competitive and successful, tough and self-reliant and can find it difficult to admit that they are feeling fragile and vulnerable. This book aims to build on the current progressive movement by supporting men and those that care about them - be that a partner, friend, family member or colleague - by providing insight, advice, and tips on what can be done at a very practical level to make men's mental health much more positive.
