Product description

From the Inside Flap

Regardless of your level of coaching experience, you are likely to be asked to support the development of people with whom you share a professional or personal relationship.

In this thoroughly revised and updated edition of his best-selling book The Mindful Coach, expert coach Doug Silsbee presents his practical Septet Model as an ideal tool for conducting coaching conversations with executives, leaders, and other professionals. The model differentiates seven roles (or Voices) that anyone in a coaching role can use when engaging in these learning conversations: Master, Partner, Investigator, Reflector, Teacher, Guide, and Contractor. In this important book, Silsbee illuminates the dynamic relationship among these seven roles and shows how to integrate them into an intelligent strategy that can be applied to any coaching conversation.

Designed as a down-to-earth resource, The Mindful Coach is filled with practical exercises and sample dialogues for learning and applying the model. Throughout the book, Silsbee's strong emphasis on self-knowledge and mindfulness integrates with the Septet Model in a transformational approach to coaching that has consistently produced significant and sustainable results for leaders in Fortune 100 companies, nonprofit organizations, business schools, education, and government.
