Written for executive coaches, teachers, and other development professionals, the book explores the seven roles or “Voices” that coaches assume while working with a client. The “Voices” are: Master, Partner, Investigator, Reflector, Teacher, Guide and Contractor. Silsbee illuminates the dynamic relationship between these roles, and integrates them in an intelligent roadmap for any coaching conversation. This book offers a helpful resource for internal and external executive coaches as well as leader coaches, consultants, trainers, teachers, and facilitators.
