This book offers a comprehensive, practical guide to goal-focused coaching. Addressing a significant gap in the literature, Ives and Cox contextualize goal-focused coaching within the broader coaching framework and explain the efficacy of this approach across a number of contexts and applications.
The book draws on behavioral science, rather than humanistic psychology, to provide a well-researched, evidence-based guide that includes:
A detailed examination of the theoretical underpinnings of this approach
A discussion of the skills, models and formats for goal-focused coaching
Cutting edge insights into barriers to coaching and managing the coaching relationship
Summaries, vignettes, references, and diagrams to aid learning
Goal-focused Coaching will be of interest to students taking classes in coaching, as well as professional executive coaches. 19 Line drawings, black and white; 12 Tables, black and white
