Coaching Basics, 2nd Edition

By  Lisa Haneberg

Great coaching makes a world of difference. Coaching is one of the quickest and most effective ways to advance the success of an organization. Yet it remains underused and misunderstood, and the term is often used synonymously with corrective counseling, encouragement, or the many helpful tactics in between.

In Coaching Basics you’ll discover a precise coaching framework along with insights from 40 experienced coaches, including Barry Goldberg and Marshall Goldsmith. This refreshed edition also homes in on what it takes to build influencing skills and introduces new content on microcoaching to highlight practical ways to leverage technology.

Part of ATD’s Training Basics series, Coaching Basics presents the theory and follows it up with easily applicable techniques, examples, and exercises that will help you perfect essential coaching skills.

Lisa Haneberg

Lisa Haneberg has 25 years of experience as a coach, trainer, writer, and consultant, and is currently vice president for MPI Consulting, an organization development practice in Cincinnati. When it comes to delivering fresh, practical approaches to the art of coaching, you can't beat Haneberg. Her upbeat, no-nonsense style makes her books engaging, applicable, and unquestionably valuable. Never one to get hung up about corporate formality, Haneberg is quick to point out that "we all drive each other bonkers," and to provide a sound framework for improving coaching and communications despite individual differences.

But don't let her lighthearted approach fool you: Haneberg has heavyweight experience in the fields of organization development and management and leadership training. She has worked with leaders in organizations as varied as Intel, Black & Decker,, Mead Paper, and the Royal Government of Thailand. With a degree in behavioral sciences from the University of Maryland, Haneberg is the author of 10 other books, including Organization Development Basics and Coaching Basics (both from ASTD Press). She is also author of numerous articles and essays and the popular blog Management Craft. Haneberg enjoys tooling around country roads on her purple motorcycle named Hazel, and she lives in Cincinnati with two cats, two big dogs, and one husband.
