Coaching books are a dime a dozen, though rarely do they present the full picture, to do that, one has to do a lot of reading, on a lot of different material.
So no coaching books have the magic bullets, they have great ideas and concepts, but there’s never a one size fits all, and a good place to start in coming to understand the bigger picture of the coaching process are three books by Daniel Coyle, they being:
The Talent Code
The Culture Code
The Little Book Of Talent
Then to begin understanding people better, one can get into the works of:
Mindsets – Carol Dweck
Grit – Angela Duckworth
Curious – Ian Leslie
Drive – Dan Pink
And then we step into the learning process itself, which is never the same for everyone:
How We Learn – Benedict Carey
I hope by now that you’ve noticed that none of these books which will help you come to understand the coaching process better, have not been written by coaches, isn’t that interesting.
I’m not saying that there aren’t fantastic coaching books out there written by people within the coaching fraternity, though sometimes it takes a fresh set of eyes to see what the good do naturally
