Central to the Advanced Coaching Pocketbook is SPACE, a 5-step model enabling coaches to reflect on and assess their own approach to coaching, and deepen their awareness of the coaching process. HR and OD professionals wanting to create a coaching culture will also find the tips and tools beneficial. Each step of the model is described in a separate chapter, and for each step the author recommends appropriate tools designed to put the theory firmly into practice. Exercises and graphic devices help to embed the understanding. SPACE was tested by practitioners across the UK and further afield.

The Global Business of Coaching

A Meta-Analytical Perspective

Coaching has become a global business phenomenon, yet the way that coaching has evolved and spread across the globe is not unproblematic. Some of these challenges include: different types/genres of coaching; understanding and relevance of different coaching philosophies and models in different cultural contexts; equivalency of qualifications and coach credentials, as well as questions over standards and governance, as part of a wider debate around professionalization. Coaching then, as with the transfer of knowledge and professionalization in other disciplines, is not immune to ethnocentricity. Through a combination of adopting a meta-analysis of coaching, supported with narratives of coaching practice drawn from different socio-political/cultural contexts, the aim of this book is to challenge current knowledge, understanding and norms of how coaching is, or should, be practised in different cultural contexts. This book will provide a foundation for further research in coaching as an academic field of study and as an emerging profession. It will resonate with critical scholars, coach educators, and coach practitioners who want to develop their praxis and enhance their reflexivity and be of interest to researchers, academics, and students in the fields of business and leadership, human resource development, organizational learning and development, mentoring and coaching.
