5.0 von 5 Sternen Everyone is a coach 3. Dezember 2014
Von Jacob Paulsen - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
This book provides a great overview of coaching. The author has a clear mentality of abundance, feeling that the primary job of a leader is to help his people grow. We are all born with the potential to succeed and the leader helps to unlock that potential in others.

The book reviews 7 key coaching skills that make for an effective leader/coach. I think each of the 7 skills could be lengthy books by themselves but as an overview of coaching Simpson does a good job addressing them to an appropriate degree.

The 7 skills are:
* Build Trust
* Challenge Paradigms
* Seek Strategic Clarity
* Execute Flawlessly
* Give Effective Feedback
* Tap Into Talent
* Move the Middle

One of the key insights I gleaned was from the section that discusses question based coaching. The author teaches that the most effective way to coach is to ask questions. This ensures that the insights come from within the individual and truly unlock existing potential.

I also loved the idea of moving the middle. Directly identify those members of the middle of the organization that can easily adopt the patterns of top performers and become tomorrow's leaders.

I recommend this book to anyone who may find themselves in a leadership position at school, home, work, church, or in any other meaningful life arena.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent Management Tool. 13. Dezember 2014
Von Penguin Chick - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
So many things we do now are team based and it's difficult sometimes to go into that type of work environment if you haven't experienced it before.

I found this book to be incredibly eye-opening and the value in each of the coaching skills will stay with me for a long while. We all want our teams to be effective and Simpson does a great job giving us the tools that we all need to be successful in that environment.

I think that armed with this knowledge I can grow as a person, and help the people on my teams grow into their full potential as well.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I wish I didn’t need this book, but I’m glad I read it. 8. Januar 2015
Von frankp93 - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
At less than 150 pages, there’s not a lot of room for fluff and Simpson does a fine job balancing straightforward organization with a clear, engaging, readable style well-suited to his advice.

He got my attention right away by identifying what coaching is NOT – ordering people about, trying to ‘fix’ them, engaging in open-ended therapy.

So what is it about? Four basic coaching principles:
Trust, Potential, Commitment, Execution

-expressed as seven coaching skills that each gets their own chapter:
Building Trust
Challenge Paradigms
Seek Strategic Clarity
Execute Flawlessly
Give Effective Feedback
Tap into Talent
Move the Middle

But this isn’t some PowerPoint-in-the-form-of-a-book. Simpson writes with compassion – and a genuine passion – for communicating these ideas. There’s plenty about what it really means to empathize, to listen, a lot of common-sense psychology (without the babble), about motivation and the value of trust and providing a safe harbor to share confidences. In fact, there’s a lot in the book about trust – building and maintaining it - because Simpson identifies it as the non-negotiable bedrock for anyone who hopes to be successfully in a coaching capacity.

I found his advice on reading non-verbal body language surprisingly on-target and without the usual pop-psych embroidery.

While the book clearly addresses corporate context, Simpson does something far more valuable: he writes in a way that invites the reader to internalize these ideas and in essence ‘coach themselves’. In fact Simpson uses the example of his own relationship with his wife to illustrate just how universally applicable many of these ‘soft skills’ are in our lives.

There are not a lot of contrived scenarios and composite individuals, which I found refreshing.

Simpson speaks conversationally yet professionally to the reader looking for practical guidance – not theory or formulaic scripts to follow. I mentioned the book’s length and part of the appeal is I felt adequate time to reflect and absorb ideas – without the intimidation factor of another 200-300 pages under your thumb to get through.

I found the extended epilogue on ’coaching the organization’ where Simpson extrapolates his ideas outward and up the corporate chain the least applicable part of the book (way above my pay grade). I’m a senior member of a small IT team and the first to admit I wasn’t drawn to this field because of my people skills, though I’m hopefully smart enough to realize it and willing to improve - which is half the game.

There’s no shortage of ‘management-on-the-fly’ books out there, going back at least to ‘The One-Minute Manager’. But ‘Unlocking Potential’ really hit home for me, in terms I can relate to and make sense of in my current situation. In my very first status meeting and team member one-on-one since finishing it I found myself drawing on specific points – that’s my definition of a worthwhile read.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Conversational, inspiring, and concise--a must-read for any leader 5. September 2014
Von Reese Haydon - Veröffentlicht auf
Michael's coaching expertise is easily communicated in this conversationally written book. Each principle is strengthened by stories from his life experience--both personal and professional. Anyone in any leadership capacity can grow from reading this book and developing the skills it outlines. The benefits aren't exclusive to professional coaches.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A great guide for any leader 2. Dezember 2014
Von Z. Freeman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Taschenbuch|Vine Kundenrezension eines kostenfreien Produkts (Was ist das?)
In the introduction to this book Michael K. Simpson defines coaching as both "unleashing or unlocking the potential of another human being" and "helping one person make the contribution only he or she can make in the world." These are both well-worded, positive-minded definitions written in a straightforward, easy-to-understand way. And this is indicative of Simpson's writing style throughout. Though this is a short book (or perhaps because it is a short book) Simpson delivers helpful bits of insight and tips on what being a coach means and how to be a better one. As a leader I found this quick read (only 141 pages, including the epilogue) extremely helpful.

The book is broken into two parts. In the first Simpson goes over the four principles of coaching: trust (gaining the trust of those you coach), potential (discovering their potential and their point of view), commitment (getting those you coach to commit to a plan of action) and execution (hold that person accountable to their commitment). These steps sound simple enough but can be tough in practice. Simpson lays out clear guidelines for making these happen.

In the second part of the book he delves into the titular seven coaching skills: build trust, challenge paradigms, seek strategic clarity, execute flawlessly, give effective feedback, tap into talent, and move the middle. This is the real meat of the book and Simpson maintains his positive, helpful outlook while continuing to dish out consistently readable and followable material.
