Additional Information

Have you ever been coached? In a group or in a team? If you could observe a group coaching session, would you get the full picture? Being Coached is not a how-to manual, nor is it narrowly focused on the role of the coach. In fact, the coach’s touch is light. Breakthroughs occur when leaders are in the middle of leading, engaging in peer coaching, or even in quiet reflection. Written from the multiple viewpoints of eight leaders in a group coaching program and six executives on a leadership team, Being Coached illustrates how creating a learning community promotes growth by making space for vulnerability and risk-taking. Simply put, it answers the question, “What is being coached like?”

"Being Coached: Group and Team Coaching From the Inside" provides a unique perspective on coaching by telling the stories of one group and one team as they participate in coaching. The authors explain the difference between team and group coaching, making the point that group coaching is a wonderful, less expensive developmental tool that pays off for the sponsoring organization by building commitment, community, and cross-organizational bonds. Team coaching, while also developmental, focuses on the capacity of an intact team to meet both shared and individual goals despite unexpected challenges . Both use a combination of individual coaching from an executive coach and peer coaching by team/group members. The result is a greatly enhanced capacity for supportive, non-threatening feedback. The individual stories make this process come alive for the reader. As the book progresses, the reader sees each team member become more comfortable with and able to give insightful... Read more
As colleagues of Holly's we have seen the birth and evolution of this book. Being Coached is a culmination of years of first hand experience of both of the authors. They bring their insights and knowledge of how to support teams and leaders in transformational change for themselves as well as those they lead. The authors have peppered their best practices tools and models throughout so it is transparent for the reader to see how the transformation unfolds. We recently provided their book to a team we are supporting and asked them to read it in preparation for a team leadership session. The authors have written the book in such a way that each person could see themselves in one or several of the characters. The discussion allowed for the team to talk about issues they had never been able to before in a safe, supportive way.

Being Coached is useful for talent managers or human resource professionals to gain insights into what the team coaching experience is as well as a... Read more
Deaton and William's book removes the mystery of coaching, through fascinating storytelling, as seen from the multiple perspectives of an individual coaching client, group, team and sponsoring organization. The book is deceptively simple because it's such an interesting read. It is resource-rich with leadership development examples that will resonate and be eye opening to both clients and coaches. My guess is that most readers will find themselves in at least one of the stories. I particularly appreciate the theme that coaching with a "light touch" is powerful, both when clients are coaching each other, and when the external executive coach is involved. Through the application of coaching, clients help each other and add a generative "coaching approach" to their leadership toolkit. As an executive coach I found myself scribbling in the margins of the book, thinking oh, this is a good idea, and musing about how I can offer this book when appropriate to individual, group and team...
