The Heart of Coachingby Tom Crane
In The Heart of Coaching (second edition) Thomas Crane introduces a transformational coaching approach to creating coaching relationships and organizing and conducting coaching conversations that simultaneously build trust and improve working relationships. Thousands of people have attended workshops and read this book to learn this approach to having a “coachee-centered” conversation.
This book is a guide on how to use the transformational coaching model as a framework to guide the conversation –- the coach and coachee add the content. When this approach becomes the common method for coaching across an entire culture, achieving sustainable results becomes easier.
