Business Coaching by Chris Farmer

How to Successfully Coach, Train, and Inspire Others

Business Coaching Book

If you were to discover that there was one verbal skill that would dramatically improve your ability to coach and counsel others more effectively, would you be willing to practice it until you were an expert?

That one vital skill is asking intelligent questions, which require a response in either thought or action. It is not good enough just to make a statement which is an assertion of what you think is true.

The book emphasises the point that, when coaching and counselling, you should ask more questions, and make fewer assertions. Questions can be used creatively to ask for agreement, gently challenge a belief, gain involvement, generate options and clarify thinking.

This is just one of a wide range of effective and creative ideas that the book covers. This book is available for £9.99 plus £2 post and packaging.

Customer Reviews

Here are a selection of reviews for our training courses.

  • The course content was very useful and causes me to think more about the way I can tackle problems. The trainer's presentation was good, always very clear and able to answer questions raised.

  • The course was brilliant. I especially liked the decision-making matrix and the past/future emotions chart. I've learnt a lot about how I work personally and how to try to better myself as a person. The trainer was energetic, to the point, clear and put his ideas across in a memorable way. I didn’t feel bored or disinterested at any point. Thank you Chris!

  • The course was excellent. Interesting, thought provoking, very useable. I have already put different aspects of the course into practice. The trainer's presentation was excellent. Thoroughly enjoyed each session and would like to come back for a refresher course. Very motivating and a very inspiring person.
