Editorial Reviews

"This is one of the few books I keep returning to.  Whether you are a new coach or an experienced one, there are always things you can learn or remind yourself of how to do better.  Gillian and Ro have a wonderful knack of explaining what to do in a practical way as well as sharing the benefits of doing so both for yourself and for the client.  A great handbook for every coach's bookshelf."
