As an avid reader and someone who’s been in leadership for longer than I care to remember, I’ve read virtually all the big business books. Surprisingly, I can honestly say that The Weekly Coaching Conversation is perhaps the best, most impactful “leadership” book I have read in the past ten to fifteen years.
While it’s difficult to pinpoint what makes this book so special, three things stand out:
1. Souza’s philosophy on how to consistently get the most out of your team by fundamentally transforming the role of the manager into more of a “coach” is a new and potentially breakthrough concept.
2. While the book is based on extensive research, the content is presented in a fun to read, highly engaging business fable format that can be read in a single sitting.
3. The book simultaneously manages to address some big strategic myths in the industry, while at the same time leaving the reader with...
A colleague of mine was raving about this new book she had just read - The Weekly Coaching Conversation. Being somewhat of a leadership geek for the past 15+ years, I have to admit I was somewhat skeptical that there would be anything new. Boy was I wrong. What an eye-openning book with a completely new approach to management!

That is by far the most compelling “business book” page-turner that I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading!! Wow! I ended up reading the entire book in one sitting!

Thank you so much for sharing your wisdom and insights with me. The coaching lessons I learned are definitely things that I can leverage every day – both professionally and in my personal life.
Outstanding book! Congratulations!
