Please email at coach@angeladunbar.co.uk to confirm your attendance please. Although please just show up if you unexpectedly become available!! We’d just like a rough idea of how many people to expect, thanks.

The plan moving forwards is that we will alternate meetings between OPEN DISCUSSION and FOCUSED on a specific book.

We do ask that you consider WHICH BOOKS  YOU WOULD LIKE TO READ FOR THE REST OF 2019. You can access a word document here of all those proposed so far which we will use to select just FOUR books to focus on at the book club. You can also visit our shared space where I upload book club resources, as well as webinar recordings we have chat notes, etc 

VOTE for the books you want by emailing me your preferred choices.

Here are my suggestions for the rest of the year:

  • Challenging Coaching by John Blakeley and Ian Day (now selected for June’s session)
  • The Art of Somatic Coaching: Embodying Skillful Action, Wisdom, and Compassion by Richard Strozzi-Heckler
  • Flourish by Martin Seligman
  • Helping the Client by John Heron

 If you would like something else, then please email me at coach@angeladunbar.co.uk with your vote, thanks

PREVIOUS MEETINGS:

APRIL MEETING

The April meeting took place at the later time of 6.00pm (UK time) on Weds 24th April, hosted by Yana Tsyganova.
This time, we had no specific book to review and instead was an open discussion about any and all books you were all currently reading. Also, an opportunity to share thoughts on any book previously chosen for the Coaches Book Club.
Yana shared that overall feedback on the open type session was positive with everyone saying that it is nice to be able to have “unplanned” discussions. Some felt it would be good to have more opportunity to discuss each other experiences as coaches.

In terms of books – it was suggested to read a Clean Language book for the next book club session. Everyone was quite keen on this since most of us are connected within the book club through Clean language it could turn out to be a good discussion. (see chosen book in May’s meeting above).  

MARCH MEETING

 Our March call took place on Weds 20th March at 12.30pm.

 Our chosen books for the month were:

  • ‘How will you measure your life’ by Clayton Christensen

 • ‘Authentic: How to be yourself and why it matters’ by Stephen Joseph

 • ‘The Listening Space’ by Tamsin Hartley

 We had a smaller turn-out than previously. Just five people which was disappointing as many more had registered to attend. But inspiring as with smaller numbers, we were able to have a deeper discussion about the books.

 We discussed two of the three books chosen last time:

 • ‘How will you measure your life’ by Clayton Christensen

• ‘Authentic: How to be yourself and why it matters’ by Stephen Joseph

 The session was recorded and you can access a video recording (large file!) through this link:

 FEBRUARY MEETING

 Here’s an update from the Coaches Book Club who held their second meeting this week on Weds 20th February.

 As well as sharing our reviews on the two chosen books ‘Time to Think’ and ‘Humble Inquiry’, we also shared feedback and recommendations on a wealth of other books we are reading / have read.

 Isabela sent me this apt quote which nicely sums up our group:

 “For every book you buy, you should buy the time to read it.” Karl Lagerfeld

 JANUARY MEETING:

 Our first meeting took place on Wednesday 30th Jan, from 12.30pm to 2.00pm. There were 13 of us who attended.

 In this session, everyone shared their top recommendations from books they had read last year, or all time favourites. Plus most made suggestions based on what we have on our book shelves ready to read in 2019.

 We have set up a shared space here where you can see a summary of all the books discussed and recommended. Plus you can download an mp3 recording of this session.
