Reviews

This is a great addition to Peter’s previous book on Team Coaching. It consists of chapters written by a range of practitioners who describe and reflect on their practice during recent organisational Team Coaching assignments. In my experience it is rare to get good practice insights but these are well written and give sufficient insight to be really useful and full of new ideas. Peter’s chapter on Evaluation of Team Coaching is new and well worth reading.

For anyone interested in how to work with senior teams, this book is essential reading. It succinctly lays out the business case for collective leadership development and offers a useful model with several applied case studies that nicely bridges the gap between theory and practice. This is the most contemporary reference on team development I have come across and I refer to it regularly. This and Hawkins's previous book is highly recommended.
