You will like this book if you believe that performance issues in the workplace often have a psychological dimension. You will get an understanding of how to work in more depth to help people resolve their issues and unlock their potential. The book focuses on what is effective coaching, stressing the importance of sound coaching principles, good coaching process, the desirable competencies of the coach, the importance of the coaching relationship and the issue of 'coachability'.

Who Would Benefit From Reading This Book and why?
You will benefit from this book if you are a counsellor or therapist and are looking for a more directive / action focused approach. Alternatively if you believe that unlocking the awareness in an individual will lead to long lasting change then this book is for you.

Reviewer’s Opinion
I like the fact that this book addresses the question of where coaching fits with therapy interventions. There's a time and a place for Counseling, Therapy, Mentoring and Coaching. In a coaching relationship all four interventions may be necessary depending on what's happening in the here and now.

I come from a psychotherapy background and had reservations about a totally non directive approach, especially with business and corporate clients. This coaching approach mixes a therapeutic approach with an action focused approach. I like the way Peter Bluckert focuses on psychological competencies and not a model / process.
