  2. Dr. Marcia Reynolds, MCC, ICF Global Board Past Chair and Author of Coach the Person, Not the Problem: A Guide to Using Reflective Inquiry

    In this crowded confusing profession called coaching, Sinclair and Passmore have written the guidebook that clears the fog for coaches on their path to coaching excellence. Becoming a Coach clarifies the distinction of coaching and why it is so effective, provides specific practices for embodying a coaching mindset, and is full of tools that will elevate your coaching impact. No matter where you are on your journey, this book will give you a bright light to follow.

  3. Osama Al-Mosa MCC, Leadership Development Specialist CCL, Founding President, ICF Jordan Chapter

    This is a very comprehensive textbook to understand professional coaching from internationally recognized specialists. It includes a wealth of information and tools a coach requires at every stage of development and practice.

  4. Hilary Oliver, PCC, ICF Global Board Chair 2017, Coach, Coach Supervisor, Mentor Coach and Coach Trainer

    I believe that this is the most up-to-date and practical guide for any coach (ICF or otherwise). It provides real, practical examples and offers in-depth understanding of the What, the Who, the How and the Why of coaching backed up with academic rigour. This is an outstanding resource for any coach no matter how skilled. The clarity and life Sinclair and Passmore bring to the competencies and approaches to coaching really demystify the science and the art of great coaching practice.

The authors bring decades of experience and research into one powerful resource. Grounded in evidence-based models, plus tools, activities, reflective exercises and more, this book is a must-read!

  6. Shweta HandaGupta, MCC, Change Leadership Coach, QuadraBrain® Transformation Solutions, Global ICF Young Leader Award Recipient, 2018

    This is one of those rare books which has something for everyone. One of the most comprehensive guides to becoming a powerful coach which starts from the basics and takes us to the essentials of mastery.
    This book has embraced the complexity of coaching literature, approaches and tools. It has then structured and presented them in a fashion that brings together the chaos to a usable format. I can safely say that this book would offer a new idea, approach or perspective even to the most experienced of coaches.

  7. Karen Dean Master Certified Coach; Co-author Coaching Stories: Flowing and Falling of Being a Coach, Originator of me:my™coach online framework for coaches to self-monitor and Coaching Supervisor

    An impressively grounded, accessible, comprehensive resource for coaches at all levels of experience. The depth of understanding offered provokes insight, shares knowledge and yet leaves the space to be yourself as a coach.
