Relational Coaching: Journeys towards mastering one-to-one learning

We are presently witnessing a boom in the coaching profession, exponential growth branching out to fields like team coaching and coaching cultures in organisations. At the same time as many new professionals are entering the field, those that have been in executive coaching some time are rapidly developing mature professional standards and best practices. This book summarises those standards and practices, and is in this respect the first of its kind.

Relational Coaching gives a complete overview not only of the profession and developments in coaching, but also of the state of the art in other respects. The book presents both quantitative and qualitative research into the effects and experiences of coaching, as well as an introduction to the activities that make a good coach and the mechanisms used to verify coaches' understanding of their profession. Other topics covered include training, accreditation, supervision and recommended literature.
