As promised, here is a link to Rachel’s excellent new E-book, Applying ACT to Workplace Coaching.
I think this is a hugely important contribution to the development of effective, ACT-consistent coaching interventions, and essential reading for:
- Members of the ACBS with an interest in using ACT in the workplace: the paper explains how to make interventions which organisations will actually buy and which organisational clients will respond to. It also provides a fantastically clear outline of how and why ACT is relevant to organisational contexts.
- Organisational coaches with an interest in evidence-based practice: in a previous post I argued that coaches need ACT (and that ACT needs coaches). This e-book will provide you with all the information you need about why this is the case, as well as practical tools and suggestions to get started. There are specific chapters dedicated to coaching Alpha Executives and Poor Performers, as well as overviews of an ACT-consistent GROW process and goal setting.
I am going to read it again as I travel around Europe over the next few weeks. I am looking forward to it, and I know it will make me a better coach. Thank you Rachel (and well done)!
