Life Coach Books: Get your Coaching Training from the Masters

There are so many great books out there that should be added to the life coach books section of the library.  But if you are looking to go beyond a good read, and really get some coaching training, you need to put the information into action.  The most efficient way to do this is to read about whatever you are struggling with at the moment, and start implementing ideas as soon as possible.  Some great life coach books to get you started are: The Portable Coach: 28 Sure Fire Strategies for Business and Personal Success by Thomas J. Leonard and Byron Larson Leonard started Coach U in 1992 and the CoachVille School of Coaching.  This is one of the original life coach books, as it was originally designed as a part of the coaching training at Coach U, and is a guide for personal and professional growth.  Some of the topics include “Adding Value for the Joy of It” and “Endorsing Your Worst Weaknesses”. Rules for Revolutionaries by Guy Kawasaki This book explains how to create revolutionary products and services, as well as strategies to take them to market. This is a great book for anyone who is looking for coaching training on creative development. The Structure of Magic, by Richard Bandler and John Grinder This book is written for psychologists, but is a must read if you are looking for some great coaching training.  Bandler and Grinder analyze how master clinicians are able to intimately connect with people in order to transform lives, and in a way that seems magical.  This is one of the best life coach books for learning the communication skills needed to become a master. Think and Grow Rich by Napolean Hill Written in 1937 and still being published, read, and quoted.  A must read for anyone interested in helping people transform their lives. Getting to Yes by Roger Fisher This book is based on “win-win” negotiation.  My husband read it, and so I had to read it to make sure he wasn’t getting an unfair advantage.  But it really isn’t about bargaining in the traditional sense.  It explains how to negotiate so neither side has to loose their integrity by abandoning their beliefs. This list is by no means complete.  There are many more books out there that provide coaches training.  So if I haven’t mentioned any of your favorite life coach books, add them to the list by sharing a comment below.
