Making Sense of Coaching
- Angelique Du Toit - Sheffield Hallam University, UK
Dr Angélique du Toit is an academic practitioner and is involved in the delivery of academic programmes and publications related to coaching. She is also an Executive Coach supporting senior executives in their personal development in both the public and private sectors.
This book is both scholarly and accessible. The author does not flinch from addressing deep theory, and, at the same time, is grounded in well developed practice. This book is a steady launch pad for anyone wanting to move beyond techniques and models of coaching and enter into an exploration of the basis for practice.
'A timely, unique and valuable resource that fills a knowledge gap in the more advanced coach education. Angelique dares to challenge and go beyond tools and techniques because she understands the fundamentals of what underpins excellent coaching practice.'
'This is a timely and appropriate contribution to the developing literature on coaching. It is written in an accessible and engaging style and with a strong sense of the underpinning research which clearly guides the writing. I particularly enjoyed the social constructionist and critical arguments which influence this work. This work offers much to think about and Dr du Toit is to be congratulated.'
