Coaching A to Z
The Extraordinary Use of Ordinary Words
About the Summary
Do you remember having a really good conversation? What made it so good? Some people just seem so naturally gifted in conversations; they make you feel understood, appreciated, or perhaps encouraged and valued. What stories do you live with? These questions launched Haesun Moon’s decade-long quest as a communication scientist to research how coaching conversations work. Based on the thousands of hours of research that earned Moon a doctorate degree, she describes in her book, Coaching A to Z, how storying together may begin with simply using our ordinary words in extraordinary ways. It could be as easy as ABC! is the exuberant hope behind this book—that you will begin conversing with yourself and others differently as a result.
