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.

Our choice for September’s book club discussion is:

  • The Art of Somatic Coaching: Embodying Skillful Action, Wisdom, and Compassion by Richard Strozzi-Heckler

Please email me at with any other book club suggestions, thanks 


    Please use the ‘resources’ link at the top of the page to access and download recordings of every book club meeting that’s taken place so far this year, thanks. 



    This session was on Weds 24th July with a small group and was not recorded on this occasion. It was an open discussion without a specific book chosen this time.


    This session took place on Weds 19th June and was hosted by Yana, We discussed the book:

    “Challenging Coaching: Going Beyond Traditional Coaching to face the FACTS by John Blakey and Ian Day.


    We met on Weds 22nd May and the book we discussed was Clean Approaches for Coaches by Marian Way. This was a really popular book and many of us had read it for a second time to come and share our thoughts. We all spoke about what aspects of the book we realty liked, which included the overall quality and ‘feel’ of the book as well as the layout. The content is pretty good too, and we shared what part of the book we particularly liked. 

     During the session we also briefly looked at a couple of other books, including a sneak peak at next month’s chosen book “Challenging Coaching” and an old classic “The Seven Habits of Highly Successful People” By Steven Covey.


    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).  


     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:


     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


     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.


     We agreed to TWO suggested book reads for February, we can choose between these:

      Humble Inquiry by Edgar H Schein

      Time to Think by Nancy Kline
