Product Details


“Being provocative, at its best, invites us to open our minds, to rethink established norms, and ultimately to become better versions of ourselves in the process. Robert Biswas-Diener has delivered another master class in provocation here—challenging some of the most conventional practices in professional coaching with fresh questions, research, and artful storytelling. If you are a coach looking to grow, this book is for you.”
—Joshua Steinfeldt, PCC, Coach Community Manager, BetterUp

“What rules need to be followed, and which ones is it time to break? Robert Biswas-Diener brings exactly the right type of provocation to how we practice coaching.”
—Michael Bungay Stanier, author of The Coaching Habit

“This book is unique. Robert Biswas-Diener challenges the status quo in coaching and positively provokes the reader to question some ideas that are usually taken for granted. A must-read for novice and advanced coaches.”
—Dr. Andrea Giraldez-Hayes, Programme Director, Master of Positive Psychology and Coaching Psychology, University of East London

“This is the most engaging and thought-provoking book about coaching that I have ever encountered! Robert Biswas-Diener, the field’s most daring provocateur, poses insightful questions that challenge deeply held assumptions about coaching practice. Engaging with these provocations will surely support you to reflect on and enhance your coaching practice!”
—Christian van Nieuwerburgh, Professor, Centre for Positive Psychology and Health, University of Medicine and Health Sciences, Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland

“If you want to turn your brain inside-out and take an utterly new look at what you think about coaching, this is the book for you.”
—Dr. Carol Kauffman, founder of the Institute of Coaching, McLean Hospital, Harvard Medical School
