From the Back Cover

“What is Masterful Coaching?” asks Robert Hargrove. “Masterful coaching is about nothing but co-creating an Impossible Future with someone―from a good leader to great one, from a third world nation to a first, from industry follower to industry game changer.”

Says Hargrove, “Coaching is the fastest, most powerful way to develop leaders at all levels.” Ask people “‘What is impossible that you are going to do today?’ versus ‘How are we going to get our list of homogenized corporate leadership competencies into you?’”

As people stretch to reach goals, they realize that what got them here as a leader isn’t going to get them there. Masterful coaching is about transformational learning, not transactional techniques.

When the first edition of Masterful Coaching was published, it quickly became the standard resource for anyone who was a coach, considering becoming a coach, or curious about being an extraordinary coach. In this completely revised third edition of his groundbreaking book, Hargrove presents his profound insights into the journey of becoming a masterful coach along with guiding ideas, tools, and methods.

You will gain the confidence and skills needed to master one-year coaching engagements with Hargrove’s 12 Catalytic Coaching Conversations.

This new edition will show you how to:

  • Stand in people’s greatness, even when they fall from it
  • Coach executives to realize an Impossible Future and Transformational Change
  • Co-create a winning game plan and jump start it with catalytic breakthrough projects
  • Develop extraordinary leaders in the process of producing extraordinary results
  • Provide people the ultimate self-development and growth experience
  • Implement the “secrets” of world-class coaches in building a super successful coaching practice
