Product description


As a career counselor in private practice, I am always on the lookout for new tools and techniques to use with my clients. [This book] did not disappoint me. The book contains practical reminders of the basics of coaching and new ideas for improving coaching practices. . . . The authors guide readers through the fundamentals of coaching and do a great job in pointing out how counseling and coaching are similar and how they are different. . . . Readers obtain a potpourri of advice for becoming life coaches, as well as a refresher course on a number of important psychological theories and practices. They should find this book a pragmatic reference to accompany them on their transition from counseling to coaching.

What a resource! This is the definitive book on life coaching, as useful to the master coach as it is to the novice. An essential book worth owning!--Richard J. Leider, Founder & Chairman, The Inventure Group, and author of The Power of Purpose and Repacking Your Bags

[I]f you are curious about the life coaching profession, Williams and Menendez's resource is a thorough one. The book provides a deeper understanding of the field along with the techniques and skills necessary to join it. . . . I found it useful as a way to learn more about the field of life coaching in general -- and even to learn techniques I can use on myself.-- (08/20/2015)
