This is the first serious, rigorous book about coaching which is deeply rooted in a long and varied therapeutical tradition and at the same time translates insights from that tradition into clear and crisp models for practical application in modern coaching practice. The book refers to well-kwn coaching approaches in business and devotes more attention than usual to internal coaching practices. It is a distinct, rigorous yet accessible guide to coaching approaches and practice.
