Praise for The Completely Revised HANDBOOK OF COACHING
"Pam McLean has written a jewel of a book. Its straightforward, easy-to-read style lays out an elegantly simple, effective, and agile coaching methodology. This will become a well-used ('dog-eared,' in the days before e-books) guidebook for both the new and the seasoned coach."
MARY BETH O'NEILL, author, Executive Coaching with Backbone and Heart
"A welcome and comprehensive update of the original Handbook, this theoretically grounded, yet highly practical book presents important integrative coaching models that deal with complex coaching issues in an easy-to-read way. This book will be of use to novices and experienced coaches alike."
ANTHONY M. GRANT Ph.D., coauthor, Evidence Based Coaching Handbook; faculty, University of Sydney
"I love this book. Pam McLean offers the most comprehensive and clear explanation of use of selfwhy it is important and where we need to focus our attentionthat I have ever read. In addition, she describes the robust Hudson coaching methodology clearly with lots of examples and always links theory to practice."
RICK MAURER, author, Beyond the Wall of Resistance; faculty, Gestalt Institute of Cleveland
"The new Handbook of Coaching is intellectually satisfying and pragmatically rich, a tour-de-force grounded in a thorough exploration of adult development and coaching models. This major rework of Hudson's classic offers practitioners extensive guidance on coach methodology, the system dynamics of change, and the crucial use of self. Leadership coaches at any level will find this an invaluable resource."
DOUG SILSBEE, author, Presence-Based Coaching
"With an emphasis on thoroughly understanding one's self as a coach and supporting one's clients to understand themselves, as well as their contexts, Pam's book is very resourceful both practically and conceptually. Her very current real-life examples are insightful and useful."
EDIE SEASHORE, M.A., author, Triple Impact Coaching
