2. This review is from: Becoming a Professional Life Coach: Lessons from the Institute of Life Coach Training (Hardcover)
I highly recommend “Becoming a Professional Life Coach” for both new and experienced coaches, and for anyone interested in learning the “coach approach” in their lives, business and communities. Today coaching skills are an invaluable resource, both in the workplace and for personal fulfillment, yet there are still millions that don’t even know what coaching is or how to become one. Pat and Diane deliver an easy to read, comprehensive guide offering history, theory and practical application of the most potent skills used by professional life coaches worldwide. This book addresses a great need in the marketplace.
As a veteran coach, it was refreshing to expand my own depth of knowledge on skills I’ve been using for years. They describe the skills, and when and how to use the skill most effectively. I also love how they included the developmental stages of consciousness, which help people recognize how ready someone is to change, and the best way to support someone to the next stage. They’ve also included sections on identifying life purpose, creating fulfillment and working on practical issues like money. The case studies integrate real-life examples to demonstrate how a skill or process is put into action.
Since Patrick Williams is the founder of his own coaching school, I expected a cookie cutter curriculum from his own school’s teachings. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how thoroughly they integrated and referenced the best disciplines from a variety of coaching schools, as well as useful and distinguished models from the field of psychology. It is no wonder that Patrick Williams is known as “The Ambassador for Life Coaching.” As a veteran life coach, I applaud Patrick for inspiring thousands more to integrate a “coach approach” in their everyday lives and/or become a life coach themselves. The world could use a few more life coaches, and this is a perfect place to begin.
