Renewal Coaching Workbook

In their groundbreaking book, Renewal Coaching, Douglas Reeves and Elle Allison offered coaches, managers, teachers, and consultants a research-based, sustainable approach to individual and organizational improvement that involved a disciplined and collaborative sequence of information, experimentation, feedback, and support. The proven Renewal Coaching framework consists of these seven elements:

Recognition—Finding patterns of toxicity and renewal

Reality—Confronting change killers in work and life

Reciprocity—Coaching in harmony

Resilience—Coaching through pain

Relationship—Nurturing the personal elements of coaching

Resonance—Coaching with emotional intelligence

Renewal—Creating energy, meaning, and freedom to sustain the journey

As a next-step resource this workbook includes a wealth of proven strategies and tools designed to help apply the Renewal Coaching approach to advance workplace performance. The workbook includes website access to a variety of helpful resources, assessments, and other tools. Also provided is a Wiki environment for participants to contribute and share their own experiences. The book also contains worksheets and activities focused on sustainable change for executive coaches, teachers, volunteers, or anyone who fits into the role of a "coach."
