Those of you who have attended Columbia's Coaching Program know that since before starting the program, I've been compiling a list of my favorite coaching books, as part of my own continuous professional development strategy in this space. I ran across a blog listing the author's "Top 20 Best Best Books in Coaching and Mentoring," see link below:
In reviewing the list, I noted he and I had a few in common, not in any particular order:
- 50 top tools (very practical, good way to expand one's tool kit);
- Leadership Team Coaching (an area of great interests to me as a strategy for making coaching more scalable in organizations);
- Coaching for Leadership (for me leadership and executive coaching go hand and hand, so connected to the 2nd on this list);
- Coaching Questions (no explanation required, use of questions is key in coaching); and
- Business Coaching Tool Kit (another book I found useful in expanding the options at my disposal, the more tools you have, within reason, you are less inclined to same hammer, when it may not fit).
What are some of your favorite coaching and mentoring books, I'm always on the look out for ideas?
