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.
Michael Nolan Partner Sheppard Moscow llp

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.

Leadership Team Coaching:
Developing Collective Transformational Leadership
Peter Hawkins

Organizations are most effective when the teams responsible for the organization's success are performing to their maximum potential. If the relationships within a team work well, and all team members have a clear focus, this has a significant positive impact on achieving goals and delivering results.

 REVIEWS
5.0 out of 5 stars In true Hawkins form, the author provides an eminently
In true Hawkins form, the author provides an eminently accessible and systematic guide for all of us who work with teams to enhance their collective contribution. This as an absolute must for anyone involved in developing teams in organisations-it is an essential resource for both OD professionals and coaches;leaders of teams and those supervising team coaching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book on team coaching - fully recommended
Peter Hawkins’ book on team coaching is an excellent tool for professional team coaches and leaders alike. As a team coach I particularly enjoy the way the author combines solid methodology and models with a wealth of concrete examples from organisational life, and specific exercises and tools.

REVIEWS
5.0 out of 5 stars Coaching, Mentoring and Organizational Consultancy
I found this book to be a very interesting and informative read. It is a rich mix of interesting explanations of group processes, of real life experiences and guidance on how best to be effective as a team leader/coach. 

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent resourceAny such handbook is of course 'something for everybody about everything', but rather than the usual listing of different approaches the authors integrate practice and theory. It is thus both a wisdom book and an academic book, without the usual exaggeration of differences between coaching, mentoring and consultancy.

 

Creating a Coaching Culture (Coaching in Practice)
Peter Hawkins


Organizations are investing large sums of money in employing external and internal coaching and are increasingly under pressure to show a demonstrable return on this investment. In this much-needed book, Hawkins gives a well researched and practical answer to the whole question of how you create a ‘coaching culture’ and provides a step-by step guide to implementing this change. The book includes advice for both coaches and HR professionals.

Open University Press, Apr 2012   ISBN:  978-0335238958

REVIEWS5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly engaging
But Peter's book engaged me. He writes with wisdom and clarity about this often jargon-ridden topic, and I don't think anyone else has approached his ability to capture what a coaching culture is about and point us in the direction of achieving one. 4.0 out of 5 stars excellent book on creating a coaching culturethis is a really insightful read into how to go about creating a coaching culture. Some really good case studies and personal insights from peter.

Supervision in the Helping Professions (Supervision in Context)
Peter Hawkins and Robin Shohet


"Supervision in the Helping Professions remains a core text in our trainings and we welcome the updates, including the increased focus on ethics and diversity, the discussion of e-enabled modes of supervision and the review of research. What is so encouraging to students, trainers and practitioners is the 'beginner's mind' with which the authors continue to approach the subject, their tireless enthusiasm for enquiry, and their commitment to the learning edge..."

 REVIEW
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource
I first read Shohet and Hawkins' 'Supervision in the Helping Professions' in 1991 when it was already the seminal text for the apprentice supervisor in the UK. My battered copy has now been superseded by the Fourth Edition - and what an update it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is clear, immediate, compassionate. This is a dry subject but not for these authors: they are present in every page
I found this work particularly congruent with its subject matter. I felt involved and able to find my level while feeling capable of learning from what is presented and also challenging what it says.  I don't say this is the perfect book on supervision. I say it is relevant, important, clear, and it treads lightly.  It is very readable as well, it flows, it comes from a wealth of experience and insight.  And it contains some very strong ahah! moments.

REVIEWS5.0 out of 5 stars Great fun!I have long enjoyed the Nasrudin stories for their simplicity and power (and shortness!). What the author has done here is to update the stories for the world of modern leadership, grouped them together, and then provided a short but insightful introduction for each grouping.
