Publisher Description

The Coach Training Companion is the book I wanted when I first trained as a Coach. There are many books out there that provide wonderfully detailed guides on specific coaching models and these are fantastic when you have experience and have found a coaching style or philosophy that you feel drawn to. There are also many books that give brief accounts of different models but no real examples of how to use them. And there are more books that provide a list of questions without any rationale for why and where to use them. 

This small book tries to balance the content, providing a brief overview of coaching skills, coaching models, and the questions you might choose within those models. Where this book differs is that it also provides the rationale behind the questions and where, when, and why you might ask that particular question. This is not designed to be a prescriptive manual. Many, if not all, of the questions could be used in other contexts, with various models, and in different stages of the coaching conversation. These are provided as examples for when they may be used. As you become familiar with the questions and their suggested usage, you will find more uses and contexts in which to use them, and create your own variations and interpretations of these inquiries. 

This book is a companion to your coach training. It is also a reference piece for coaches on their journey to serving the world. It is likewise a reminder for experienced coaches who may wish to pick it up and flick through the pages in search of a prompt when they are stuck. Remember, coaching is in service of the coachee; this book aspires to give you the confidence and fluency to serve your coachees well. 

I hope you enjoy this companion book and find it useful as you grow and develop as a coach. There is an accompanying mobile app available in the Apple and Google app stores.
