Using Client Feedback in Executive Coaching, Improving Reflective Practice
Book Cover: Using  Client Feedback in Executive Coaching. Oval mirror with gilded frame on green background

More and more coaches are becoming credentialed and regularly engage in training and supervision to gain feedback and learn from their peers. Coaches (and the organisations that hire them) recognise the value of continuous professional development and reflective practice to give them a competitive edge. Yet very few leverage their own clients as a source of information in their professional development, despite the fact that clients spend more time observing and experiencing them in practice than all other observers combined. This book will help you make the most of this untapped resource.
Applicable to executive coaches worldwide, as well as their educators and supervisors, this book will:

  • Highlight effective executive coaching behaviours in relation to two major outcomes of coaching: the strength of the coach-client relationship and the generation of new insights for the client
  • Present a structured process to educate your clients about the benefits of soliciting their feedback
  • Offer a protocol to seamlessly ask for client feedback during a coaching session
  • Demonstrate how to use client feedback to inform reflective practice, whether alone or in educational or supervision settings

With a deep evidence-base from the author’s research in 25 countries, involving over 130 clients of executive coaching, this is compelling and pragmatic reading to support the use of client feedback in practice.
