Coaching is based on the premise we must understand people before we can coach them. Flaherty asks fundamental questions rather than supply "easy to apply" tips and surface bandaids. "Coaching is not telling people what to do; it's giving them a chance to examine what they are doing in the light of their intentions." (from the Preface) "A coach is someone who builds a respectful relationship with a client and then researches the situations the client finds himself in, with particular emphasis on the client's interpretation of the events." (from Chapter 1) Then, in partnership with the client, the coach can work to altering actions to bring about expected outcomes. This book provides the language and operative principles and assessment models and sample coaching conversations necessary to do that.
The book is grounded in many different paths of wisdom including time-tested philosophies, sociological premises and psychological discussions. Chapter bibliographies encourage further interdisciplinary reading.

Front Cover Quote
"As interest in coaching grows, I think James Flaherty's book will come to stand out as a definitive work." - Peter M. Senge.
Coaching, Second Edition
Evoking Excellence in Others
"In Coaching, Second Edition, James Flaherty brilliantly dissects both the art and science of coaching- one of the more difficult and least understood roles in organizations. Beginning with theories, concepts and models he shows their application to practice and empowers any aspiring coach to be more effective in helping people achieve their goals. A better book on this subject just doesn't exist."
Jerry I. Porras, Lane Professor of Organizational Behavior and Change Emeritus, Graduate School of Business, Stanford University and Co-Author, Built to Last
"As the field of coaching finds its way to becoming a mature discipline, James Flaherty's dedicated field research, study, and sound articulation offers a definitive ground and a sensibility of genuine care. At the core this book offers a way of thinking about human beings that makes action and practice central to learning. This is a no-nonsense, generous, pragmatic book that belongs on the shelf of every coach, novice or veteran."
Richard Strozzi-Heckler, Ph.D., Founder of Somatic Coaching and author of The Anatomy of Change and Holding The Center
"James Flaherty focuses on the commonly overlooked fact that a coachee is a "human-being". He effectively emphasizes that this is the most important aspect that a coach should always have in mind, something that many of us tend to forget. It was this tact that he applies toward coaching, as well as many other brilliant insights, that helped me make the decision to publish Coaching in Japanese and apply its lessons in my practice."
Mamoru Itoh, President, Coach21 Co., Ltd., Tokyo, Japan
