Coaching Blogs & Golf Articles & Books

I write blogs about coaching primarily for other coaches and people in organisations involved in running internal coaching programs. In the past I have written a news letter aimed at golfers who are interested in strengthening their mental game.  These are all topics that I am particularly interested in and am drawn to sharing my thinking.

Coaching Book 

2017: I am delighted to be a contributing author on this third book of coaching blogs from The Good Coach. The new book - Translating Coaching Codes of Practice : leading the way into the personal knowledge base of everyday practitioners.   Like the previous volumes, this book brings together the personal experiences and learnings gleaned from the day to day work of executive and internal coaches. 


2016:   I am very excited to share that several of my blogs have been included in a new book on coaching - Translating Coaching Codes of Practice; insights from the leading edge of everyday practice.  This collection of blogs published on the Good Coach web site, is written by practicing coaches with the aim of sharing their real experience and practices with other coaches. 

Read a review of the book by Isobel Gray.  “I found this book very impressive and richly affirming; stimulating and thought provoking, with plenty of practical tips and original insights for review. … I do not feel it’s a one-off read through book. Rather it is something that I can see myself coming back to frequently as a regular reference point because of the very rich and diverse menu of material on offer in this book.”  Isobel Gray, 2016.
