The Tao Of Coaching
Max Landsberg intended the Tao Of Coaching to be a “pocket book” about using coaching as a leadership style so you’ll enjoy this book if you like dipping in and out of a book. It is a concise book of only 122 pages about coaching, focusing on all aspects of coaching including; what is coaching, when to coach and how to coach using the popular
GROW coaching model
. In many ways it is a leadership book too as it covers topics such as asking versus telling, giving and getting feedback and motivation. It’s a short user-friendly book telling the story of Alex and how he has developed his leadership style as a coach through his career.
You’ll enjoy this book if you are a manager who wants to develop a coaching style of leadership but doesn’t want to read a book heavy on theory. Coaches will also enjoy this book as it is easy to dip in and out of for a quick refresher.
This was the first book I ever read about coaching when I was helping managers to change their leadership style from autocratic to empowering. It has stayed with me ever since and I still dip into it regularly when I want a quick titbit about coaching. I love the fact it is short and easy to read but it has everything in it you need as a coach. Each topic is covered in a couple of pages so you can get a “quick fix” or Just in Time. nugget about coaching. Alex’s story brings coaching to life in a practical way. I particularly like the cartoons and other tables and diagrams which give information in a digestible way.
