Kim Morgan’s best-selling book, The Coach’s Casebook, includes many ideas and insights derived from Kim Morgan’s experience as Managing Director of Barefoot and her many years working at the top of her profession as a coach and trainer of coaches.
Co-authored with Geoff Watts, the Coach’s Casebook is a different type of coaching book. Kim Morgan says “It’s a real fly-on-the-wall account of the coaching relationship in practice. If you’ve never had coaching, this will give you a better understanding of the process and you will probably learn something about yourself as well. There is also plenty in the book for experienced coaches”
The Casebook focuses on twelve traits which every coach will face in their coaching work. These are behavioural traits which you will recognise in others and may well recognise in yourself - traits such as people pleasing, perfectionism, impostor syndrome, performance anxiety and procrastination.
Each chapter follows a skilled coach working with a client who is grappling with one of these twelve traits. The coach shares their emotions, their thought processes and their reflections as they try to understand the psychological origins of these behaviours and to work out how to help their client.
The Coach's Casebook also includes inspirational insights from individuals who have triumphed over such traits and have succeeded in all walks of life - figures such as Arctic explorer Pen Hadow. Alec Stewart and Lewis Moody from the world of sport and Greg Dyke from the world of business,
The Casebook is designed above all to be of practical help to coaches in their work. You will find dozens of practical, tried and tested techniques. You can use this book today to help your clients to change the habits of a lifetime.
“Reading this book is like being a coach, a client, a supervisor, a student of coaching, and in relationship with all of those people all at once! It also achieves that remarkable thing, and rare, of being both friendly and rigorous, gentle and challenging, calm and pacey. Its ingenious structure provides an instantly digestible feast of learning. It is a triumph!”
