Okay: so the title really drew me to this book; it’s eye-catching and challenging, and I went for it! Actually, there’s another reason: I’m keen to improve my own coaching practice and am a sponge for new approaches and ideas that will help me to provide even better service to clients. About the title, more later!
I’m really pleased that I picked this book up. It is easy to navigate, has a very readable style and – unquestionably – has lasting value. Organised in 4 parts, the reader is led through a simple coaching framework devised and practised by the authors: the framework appears, helpfully, on page 1, and it contains three elements – Enlighten, Encourage and Enable – which are succinctly summarised in the first 7 pages. Thereafter, by way of further introduction, coaching in the context of behavioural change is explained.
