"I really value this book. I found it to be written with wisdom and integrity and full of practical sound advice and guidelines. There are many books on coaching and if you have to choose I would say go for this one. It is comprehensive but above all easy to read and use and written by someone who walks the talk." Sue Knight, Author of NLP at Work
"Its unlikely that theres a better book for coaches on the market. Julie Starr is so obviously a people person because her passions for your personal fulfilment shines through and you cant help but want to become a better coach just to please her!" Anglo American Books, 03/03.
"Its wonderfully supportive in tone. At times Starrs advice becomes almost Zen-like. Overall, this is a powerfully written book by a self-confident author who is passionate not only about coaching, but also about providing a service with integrity. It is rare for the personality of a writer to come through so strongly in a non-fiction text" People Management, Dec 2002
It offers new insights and fresh ideas to the established coach and an easy to follow, step-by-step approach for the beginner." Overall Rating ***** (Max 5 stars each for categories of Useful, Well Written, Practical, Inspirational, Value for money), Personnel Today, Feb 2003

I think this book is great!
The book is very well organized and includes numerous tips and exercises. An added bonus is the book's attractive format and art.
My only criticism (very minor) is reserved for the proofreader. A few typos and ommissions crept into the text, however they don't interfere with the smooth read and the valuable subject matter. Very highly recommended.
Successful organisational leaders of the future will require effective coaching skills and the coaching experience to assist professionals to transition to managers and the coaching skills to support managers to transition to leaders.
