  • Praise for Coaching Understood

    ‘In Coaching Understood, Elaine Cox offers a most extensive, most accessible, holistic examination of theories from across disciplines, to explore and discuss every nuance and aspect of the coaching relationship and task. Coaching Understood is full of applications to practice, with examples and coaching excerpts to illustrate, and thus a most comprehensive evidence-based text becomes practical and pragmatic through its easily readable presentation. Refreshingly, concepts such as mindfulness, flow and presence are given attention. This book will leave researchers, coaches and clients wanting to know more, do more and think more about how the coaching process really works.’

    JanRobertson, Senior Researcher, University of Waikato, New Zealand. Senior Associate, New Zealand Coaching and Mentoring Centre

    ‘In Coaching Understood, Dr. Elaine Cox masterfully blends theory, research and pragmatism in the development of her Experiential Coaching Cycle which is a universally applicable coaching framework. Her book is a necessary foundational resource for those with a passion for coaching. It is especially relevant for those who wish to become more effective coaches, and for those who engage in research about coaching. Readers will come to understand coaching as a “communicative learning process” that is uniquely distinct from counselling and mentoring.’

    AndreaD.Ellinger, Ph.D., PHR, Professor of Human Resource Development, The University of Texas at Tyler

    ‘If you are looking to truly understand the coaching process, this book is for you. Novices, advanced beginners and experts alike will find evidence-based insights into the philosophical and scientific foundations underpinning contemporary coaching practice. Highly recommended.’

    AnthonyGrantPhD, Director, Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney
