    This was a confusing book to read. It equates coaching with more or less telling people what to do in a supervisor-subordinate relationship. In terms of my own reading on the practice of coaching, this is not what it is. One half of the book is about mentoring which, in the author's description of it, is much closer to coaching as I understand it.

It equates coaching with more or less telling people what to do in a supervisor-subordinate relationship. In terms of my own reading on the practice of coaching, this is not what it is. One half of the book is about mentoring which, in the author's description of it, is much closer to coaching as I understand it. The book does not totally lack good ideas and advice, but its examples and sample conversations reveal an assumption that employee apathy and underperformance are related to a misunderstanding of the company's goals. I have news for this author: often, the problem is that the employee DOES understand the company's goals, and they have nothing to do with the employee's well-being. That's the way the business world is, and this book promulgates that. At times, it reminded me of Bill Lumbergh in the movie "Office Space." If you want a good book on the modern practice of coaching, this is not it.

    Dear Leaders, I would strongly recommend this book to help you lay down a few basics in place on coaching and mentoring. The book very comprehensively lays down the line between the 2 leadership terms. Coaching and Mentoring sounds to have a lot of overlaps and might look with a blurry line in between, however the book brings into discussion very important / Practical / impactful principles in an ease to understand language. The Concepts coming straight from corridors of Harvard has its own grav Dear Leaders, I would strongly recommend this book to help you lay down a few basics in place on coaching and mentoring.

    Mostly terrible nonsense and old information about business coaching. It is 2021 for heaven’s sake and this coaching book has its own chapter for how to coach women and minorities. It stated that you better be careful when coaching women (as a man) as they might fell for you. WTF, seriously Harvard Business Press? Seriously, it’s time to burn books again.

    This is a great overview of business common sense. The review at the end of each chapter is very helpful to the reader, and the free tools come in handy.

    This book is really clear and simple, and it makes an interesting distinction between mentoring and coaching. The audience is geared towards managers who are trying to be either a coach or a mentor to their people. The sections on how to benefit from these relationships is less well developed, but still also useful. Being able to see the expectations, according to Harvard, for both sides of the relationship makes it better for both sides to maximize their respective roles.

    Boring and misleading. According to the authors, Coaching is tell you what you are doing right and wrong. It's contrary to the coaching method ive been researching so far. I have also found some conflicts with the baseline of command and control in which the boss is more clever and has more experience than employees. Boring and misleading.

    Definitely the best book about coaching and mentoring that I've read, and actually the only one so far. Useful and practical with lots of valuable real life examples. Useful to coaches, executive coaches, mentors and proteges, even managers and to HR. Chapter about executive coaching was a bit narrow.

    It is familiar, but the reinforcement is helpful. Plus, some new ideas/word choices are discussed. It's so important for managers to help their people grow and become better through providing positive reinforcement, open discussion, and challenges. Everyone gains from it!
