In this Fifth Edition of Coaching for Performance, Sir John Whitmore and Performance Consultants shine a light on what it takes to create high performance and unpick the myths around coaching.
Coaching cultures are better performing, fairer, and more sustainable than those arising out of traditional management systems. Coaching for Performance is for any leader aiming for excellence.
Coaching for Performance directly impacts the way of working in our companies. It provides coaches and leaders with a fantastic tool for people development that is so powerful.
Coaching for Performance was our reference manual when we introduced coaching as part of our leadership development activities in the European Commission. It helped us to understand the benefits of coaching, provided a sound base in our initial selection of external coaches and, later, a benchmark for the development of our own internal coaching team. Some years on, the Commission benefits from a strong coaching culture, with Sir John's work as the main reference point. This book is a must-read for managers and OD practitioners alike.
This new edition is a testament to Sir John Whitmore's commitment to real change in people's lives and will bring value to all industry leaders.
The best first book to read for leaders as well as new or experienced coaches. It goes beyond the skills that it so aptly spells out, to explain the essence of coaching.
This book is a must-read for leaders and organizational development practitioners who recognize that coaching is a performance activity which impacts leaders, teams, and culture holistically.
Coaching for Performance is the proven resource for all coaches and pioneers of the future of coaching.
