What people say about the work:
"I was simply elated to learn my two friends and colleagues were writing a book; I knew with their vast experience it would be a home run. I was not mistaken. Ann and Holly make group and team coaching real through compelling, authentic stories. For the senior executive or leader, they take away the mystique and potential fear of being coached and align the process with with they are already experiencing. For the leadership or executive coach, they masterfully interpret coaching scenarios, which realistically share the individuals' truths and vulnerabilities. They also demonstrate how the coach serves as the catalyst and mirror helping those individuals become the curer of their own issues. A beautiful and powerful handbook for coaches, and the executive leaders they serve."
