Coaching is very big business. Over the past decade, it has become one of the most popular approaches to personal and business development.

Coaching books tend to focus on just one method, and just one of five main areas: executive coaching (for senior business people) business coaching (for companies to improve results) life coaching (for people who want a better sense of fulfilment and wellbeing) sports coaching (for individual athletes) and team coaching (for teams in sport or business).

This is the first book to explain the key concepts that underpin all of these different areas. It also explores how various ideas have blended to give rise to what we know as ‘coaching’ today.
