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.

Employees around the world are deprived of honest objective feedback, and the higher you go in the organisation, the less feedback you are going to get. Researchers confirmed that the less facetime employees have with their managers, the more impact seeking and receiving feedback will have on their performance.

The Human Moment

Organizations are becoming increasingly dehumanized. The move toward an AI-driven world of work means intense competition for a finite number of ‘human’ resources where the pressure to perform can incite an “I’m fine” response when a colleague enquires into our wellbeing. Opportunities to connect authentically with or care for one other at a basic human level are diminishing, and we only know our colleagues superficially.

 This book argues that human connections are formed by showing vulnerability and sharing stories of suffering. Creating a culture of workplace compassion is an organizational imperative in the 21stcentury where suffering is hidden, stress-related absence is growing and career burnout is a recognized phenomenon. The Human Momentsuggests that, by encouraging cultures of compassion, organizations can help to build healtheir workplace environments.
