Publisher's Summary

Coaching is a way of managing, a way of treating people, a way of thinking, a way of being. Coaching has matured into an invaluable profession fit for our times and this fourth edition of the most widely read coaching book takes it to the next frontier.
Good coaching is a skill that requires a depth of understanding and plenty of practice if it is to deliver its astonishing potential. This extensively revised and expanded new audio edition of Coaching for Performance clearly explains the principles of coaching and illustrates them with examples of high performance from business and sport. It continues to follow the GROW sequence (Goals, Reality, Options, Will) and clarifies the process and practice of coaching by describing what coaching really is, what it can be used for, when and how much it can be used, and who can use it well.

Great content, awful narration

The content is fantastic - I began applying concepts immediately. Unfortunately, this narrator has ruined several books in my collection with his boring delivery and smug enunciation.

Excellent Material, Readers is Not Very Enjoyable

This is an excellent book with quality material presented. I highly reccomend this book for anyone looking to broaden their coaching techniques or reinforce some habits and tatics not recently reviewed.

However the readers voice did not resonate well with me and the way he ends sentences kinds of irritates me and decreases my focus. I will personally buy this book do avoid this setback and try to get the most from the material.

Great book, narration needs a do over

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

This is easily one of the best coaching books on the market - for me its the coaching bible. I like to maximize my time and listen to a lot of audiobooks whilst tending to household chores and when commuting. I have the paper copy but wanted an audiobook for repetitive learning benefits whilst mobile but I found this audiobook seriously difficult to keep up with due to the narration style - too fast for me to digest. I would even go as far to say I found it exhausting at times. Perhaps it would be okay if when listening to it in a deeply focused manner.If I was rating the book it would get 5. If I was rating the narration, for me, a 1.
