Book 3: Translating Coaching Codes of Practice - Leading the way into the personal knowledge bases of everyday practitioners
The real knowledge of how coaching works lives in the heads of practitioners
Coaching practitioners are beginning to more earnestly reflect on how they approach and practice in their field. Evidence of how they practice can be accessed by everyday practitioners applying a practitioner research approach. Self-reporting on their approach is inherent to the sustainability of practice, developing the community and delivering what the market needs.
Leading the way into the personal knowledge bases of every day practitioners is the third book in the Translating Coaching Codes of Practice series. Our latest edited volume continues to be packed with refreshingly candid and insightful experiences. Over thirty established practitioners, both new and regular, share their realised insights, and patterns, from their unique code of practice. They report on key events that have influenced how they practice. They may be working from within an organisation. They may be working from a portfolio of service contracts with professionals in various organisations. They are all working with an individual – directly, with groups and/or teams - in different locations all around the world.
Their insights and patterns of practice will be valuable to anyone seeking to make sense of how their coaching approach works in their own space. After all coaching is all about giving that quality of attention that enables an individual to have the confidence and clarity to express themselves and their learnings in multiple contexts. Importantly, they are also leading the way into establishing where the real knowledge exists; the personal knowledge bases of everyday practitioners.
Book 2: Translating Coaching Codes of Practice - Insights from the leading edges of everyday practitioners
There is still scope for better understanding of what is involved in coaching.
- What is the real relationship between our practice and our market?
- Are there different codes of practitioner practices being ignored for simple generalisations?
- How can we begin to translate these codes of different practices into greater knowledge and understanding of how coaching works?
- And why does it matter that we need to start building a practitioner knowledge base that begins with the leading edges of every practitioner?
These are important questions established practitioners of coaching ask about their work. Continuing with our latest edited volume, over 15 experienced individuals share their insights and experiences of how they translate these questions through their practice. They each work in different places in different locations around the world, and each share their leading edges of how they are making it work for them in their market.
Their insights will be valuable for anyone seeking to apply a coaching approach in their own space. After all, coaching is about giving that quality of attention to an individual to have the confidence and clarity to reach their potential now and in the future. Packed with refreshingly candid and insightful approaches, Translating Coaching Codes of Practice shows that on top of being passionate about coaching we can be even more appreciative of sharing understanding, through self-reporting, how each practitioner makes it work. The unique code of each person’s practice can better inform the field and the wider market of the realities that everyday practitioners operate in, that go beyond the many limitations of currently approved practice.
