    Book details

"A straightforward approach to the simple art of coaching conversations, while offering insight into the complexity and sophistication of coaching for those looking to take their practice to the next level."
Dr Jonathan Passmore, Independent Consultant

"Coaching Skills is much more than just a book containing a wide portfolio of tools, techniques and concepts, brilliantly supported by many case studies. It is a book for practitioners who will find here a profound and accessibly-presented analysis of the most important models, theories and results of research, with detailed links to coaching as well as guidelines on how to deal with the difficult situations and dilemmas faced by coaches."
Dorota Pora¿ka, Managing Partner of DORADCA Consultants Ltd

"Jenny Rogers writes with enviable elegance and simplicity about the skills that coaches need. This third edition is a testament to her belief that coaches never stop learning. In this edition she shares the fruits of her recent reading and experiences. There is a good deal of new material, including a chapter on advances in neuroscience, new insights from the recent coaching literature and new models to consider. But Jenny wears her erudition lightly. She takes the reader by the hand through a complex journey, sharing the excitement of her discoveries but not overwhelming with detail.Her strong personal voice comes through in every sentence, understanding, encouraging, pragmatic. I read it from cover to cover in a weekend, and know I will be back to reread before long."
Lis Paice, NHS Mentor of the Year, 2010

"Jenny Roger's clear writing style, straight-forward approach and case examples allow for insight into the coaching process and a glimpse at the learning that occurs for both client and coach. This edition offers even more with enhancements to previous writing and a chapter specifically focused on the brain. Whether you are a coach - new or experienced, a manager or simply interested in learning more about what we do as coaches, this is a must have resource for your library."
Diane Brennan, MBA, MCC, Past President of The International Coach Federation (2008) and coeditor, The handbook of knowledge-based coaching: From theory to practice

"This book is a gem for anyone curious about executive coaching - what it is, how it works and how to do it well in practice.As a coaching pioneer and highly accomplished practitioner, Jenny draws upon her extensive experience in coaching, coach training and supervision and brings to life theory and approaches with rich case studies, humour and humility.The third edition benefits from a chapter on the fascinating emerging field of neuroscience and explores early implications for coaching.As with the rest of the book it is accessible, relevant and well researched.I consider Coaching Skills to be essential reading for novice and established coaches alike."
Sandra Grealy, Director of Coaching, Management Futures Ltd

"Among all the coaching books on the market this book stands out for its clarity and wisdom, and for its engaging and unpretentious voice. In designing a coaching course at Fielding Graduate University, I had no hesitation in making it required reading."
Leni Wildflower, PhD, PCC,

    Review Text

  • By Rachel Paul. ConsultEast on 10 May 2012

    Our ILM Coaching and mentoring certificate students at level 5 and 7 have been devouring the second edition for the past 4 years. This third edition brings to life the focus on relevant practical skills, and sound ideas to consider, when practicing coaching. The tentative and exploratory journey into the impact of neuroscience on coaching, with practical case study illustration and the use of the SCARF model, offers practitioners a much needed illustration of new ways of working to achieve excellence in coaching. We are lucky to have such a generous and empathic coaching diva in our world to give us the explanations and insights needed to entice and stimulate both new and experienced coaches.

    There are a lot of books out there on coaching and how to coach. When I was in the process of designing Fielding Graduate University's Evidence Based Coaching curriculum, I came across Jenny's Coaching Skills Handbook, and I knew immediately, this book was essential reading for anyone learning the skill and craft of coaching. I am in the process of designing an online masters degree in knowledge-based coaching and mentoring and, again, Jenny's book is on my required reading list. You will not find a more readable, more intelligent, or more comprehensive book on coaching and coaching skills. It is a rare treat to find a book that describes coaching, the skills involved, and the coaching process, which is also enjoyable to read!!Leni Wildflower, PhDWildflower ConsultingUnited Kingdom[...]

    This is a book definitely worth adding to your library. It is a resource you will use whether you are a coach, teach coaching skills or are someone wanting to add more of a coach approach into your management style. Jenny's candid writing style and case examples allow one to easily see how to apply what you learn through the readings into your daily work and life. I used this book teaching coaching skills within the Evidence Based Coaching Program at Fielding Graduate University and I've also used it with managers and professionals wanting to learn more about a coach approach. It's one of my favorites!

    It's refreshing to find a book on coaching that's written with such clarity and intelligence. No pretentious waffle. Plenty of practical insights firmly rooted in experience.

    I have recommended this handbook to many people. It's one I return to time and again, for Jenny Rogers' pragmatic and sensible approach to coaching. Have just purchased her latest book and expect the same from that.
