The reasons that coaching works so well and can produce such dramatic results are grounded in psychology, so it follows that some of the most powerful coaching methods available draw on psychological thinking. Published with the Association for Coaching, Mastery in Coaching presents the latest thinking on the most effective techniques coaches can use with their clients. Every chapter is written by a leading expert in the field, and takes a rigorous, evidence-based approach which will give you a practical understanding of each method, supported with examples, and underpinned by the theory of the key psychological concepts in coaching. Ranging from cognitive-behavioural coaching, gestalt and positive psychology to neuroscience and mindfulness, this indispensable book will give any serious coach the tools they need to get the best from their clients.

"While this book is entitled Mastery in Coaching: A complete psychological toolkit for advanced coaching, in fact, it offers far more than a toolkit. It will help you along your coaching journey by offering a wide array of research and perspectives. At the Institute of Coaching at Harvard Medical School we see that the greatest challenge facing coaches today is to bridge good theory and research to best practices. "The Association for Coaching and Jonathan Passmore achieve this difficult challenge with ease and grace...As you absorb the information presented here, the theory, its application and case examples will help you pull knowledge and wisdom from your mind to your heart and gut."--Carol Kauffman "Founder and Executive Director, Institute of Coaching "
"Mastery in Coaching, the sixth book in the AC series, skilfully draws upon a rich body of knowledge, demonstrating that 'coaching works'...It is a significant contribution to the profession, based on the premise that mastery is not a destination in itself, but a journey of lifelong learning."--Katherine Tulpa "CEO and Co-founder, Association for Coaching "
