Here are 20 of my favorites

I am often asked to recommend books to aspiring and experienced coaches. While there are hundreds, if not thousands, of worthwhile resources, here are 20 of my favorites. I’ve included them for their potential impact on the mindsets and skills of coaching and range of related topics. This selection includes books related to Appreciative Inquiry, change, coaching practices and skills, communication, Gestalt approach, helping relationships, human development, and interpersonal relationships. There are many models and frameworks and dozens of theoretical concepts that inform coaching. I’ve selected the following books because they are a few of my go-to resources:

I encourage everyone to continue to expand their knowledge and develop their skills. The practice of coaching, whether you are an aspiring coach, experienced coach, or a manager who uses a coaching approach, requires continuous learning. Resources like these can support you in your journey.

I’m interested in your thoughts and ideas, along with YOUR book suggestions, so please leave your comments, feedback, and suggestions below.
