the business and practice of coaching book review

The Business and Practice of Coaching is somewhat of a hybrid of these two ideas. In this sense, no one needs a coach. Problem solving is for counselors and consultants. Their client has a specific issue and you assume the authority figure role that has all the answers. Neither of these approaches is inherently better than another. For people with serious mental illness, an authority figure role may be more appropriate than a coach. Also, this book was one of the resources that convinced me to go get formal training.
