Description : Bringing “coaching skills” to a therapy practice and clients. In Therapy with a Coaching Edge, professional practice guru Lynn Grodzki offers a new, paradigm-changing therapy model—adding the leverage and action of a coaching approach to the wisdom and goals of psychotherapy. This book presents a set of powerful coaching strategies that have been adapted and designed specifically for therapy—to provide more reach and range for therapists and counselors while not requiring a wholesale abandonment of therapeutic principles. Using this model, therapists at all levels of experience can promote behavioral change without insisting on homework or rigid protocols. Clients can spot results in each and every therapy session. Resistance to treatment often softens and client retention improves. Grodzki gives new and veteran clinicians the skills to not only improve client outcomes, but also energize themselves as practitioners. Therapists feel empowered as they learn to ask compelling questions that generate "ah-ha" moments. They help clients go beyond a discussion of symptoms to explore topics of core values. They show clients how to make decisions based on both necessity and a vision of a better future. The model provides readers with just-in-time learning, to identify a skill when it is needed an then immediately apply the steps in a session. Grodzki, an expert psychotherapist and master certified coach, has proven herself to be a trusted voice for therapists through her writing and workshops; she makes the steps to using a coaching approach understandable by offering lively case examples, "your turn" exercises, and sample scripts to give her readers the confidence and context to move forward.

Description : This book deserves to be read by all women who strive to achieve fulfillment in both their personal and professional lives. The authors deftly examine the reasons behind why so many articulate and well-educated women today feel overwhelmed and underappreciated. It is hardly news that, despite the feminine "revolution" that began in the 1970's, the majority of women have not found the enjoyment, lifestyle or satisfaction they once imagined. The reason they attribute to their problem is that they have taken on too much! But, that is just the tip of the iceberg. Career women, in particular, have come to believe it is their lot in life to be running on 8 cylinders day in and day out. Women are dancing to a frenzied beat, believing just because they can, they think they should. They have been taught if they are capable of doing something it shouldn't be necessary to look for help. This has led women to become frustrated by experiencing long days and nightmarish schedules. Women are exhausted. Authors Barb McEwen and John Agno are North American's top coaches of Executive Women. They not only challenge women to get their supports in place, but to make the right choices so their health, family life, careers and relationships are not undermined. Fortunately they also give you the tools to do so. As you embrace these concepts and become a more effective leader, you'll learn how you can negotiate what you want and fine tune your time management skills. Since each of us has been given the gift of choice and the power to act, you are encouraged to take the time to complete a variety of workbook exercises which will help to determine your passions, purpose, and priorities in order to achieve the fulfilling life you want.
