Are You Listening?: Stories from a Coaching Life

Are You Listening?: Stories from a Coaching Life (Hardback)

£14.99
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

'The coaching room can sometimes become its own theatre. A marriage unravels right in front of you. A shaming confession is made. A secret hugged for many years is disclosed. Tears of wrenching anger and despair can take up the whole session. These are times where you and the client hold your breath because nothing is ever going to be the same again.'



It is very rare as an adult to find a place where you are not judged, where you can be open, honest and vulnerable: that is exactly what coaching provides. This book brings together twenty different stories which represent the very human dilemmas a coach can encounter. Coaching is not therapy but it is closely related, and while many people seek (or are assigned) executive coaching for work problems, just like therapy each person brings their whole self to the conversation. Exploring Jenny's beautifully written and moving stories will offer the reader a chance for deep reflection on the meaning of modern relationships.

Jenny Rogers has been an executive coach for almost 30 years working with high profile clients across a broad range of sectors internationally. She is one of the UK's most experienced and well known coaches who, in addition to her coaching practice trains other coaches, is a regular contributor to BBC Radio. She has been published widely in the past by a range of professional and academic publishers with books aimed at executive coaches including Coaching Skills: The Definitive Guide to Being a Coach (now in its 4th edition) which is widely acknowledged as being the ultimate book for anyone wanting to coach professionally around the world and has been translated into Polish, Mandarin, Danish and Hebrew.
