This is an important book for anyone considering working with a personal or life coach. G Scott Graham has created an easy to read guide that gives you a no holds barred, behind the scenes look at what is now the wild wild west that is the world of personal coaching. Mr Graham reveals that many "coaching certifications" are not worth the paper they are written on. Mr Graham teaches you the questions you need to ask to make sure you are going to work with a qualified coach. I would strongly recommend that anyone considering working with a coach take the time to read this book.

There are literally thousands of people on the internet advertising their services as life coaches. Who are these people? Answer: Yahoos who fantasize about running a laptop lifestyle business and weary therapists who are tired of dealing with insurance companies. Well...many of them anyway. So, what exactly is a life coach? What do they do? What happens in a life coaching session? Could your problem be helped by coaching? How does coaching differ from therapy? What credentials does a life coach need? How much should you expect to pay? And, to the point, how can you find a good one? Almost any question you could have about life coaching is answered clearly and succinctly in this brief but informative guide.

When I went looking for a life coach in December 2015, I did the following three things: 1) Checked for "real" credentials, including college degrees; 2) Looked at testimonials posted on sites that were independent of the coach's website; 3) Took advantage of a free, introductory coaching session. Turns out, these are exactly the three things Scott Graham suggests you should do to vet a potential coach. Also turns out, coincidentally, this process brought me to Scott Graham, the best coach I could ever have hoped for. Anyway, "Ten Things You Need to Know About Coaching Before You Get A Coach" is full of remarkably helpful information about a remarkably ambiguous topic.

This book will help you decide if you could benefit from life coaching. This book will also help you avoid paying $200 per session to an unemployed rock guitar player who invested 20 hours in a life coaching certificate program, put up a website, and now dispenses poorly-considered advice while sitting in his pajamas, in a cabin, on an island, in the middle of a lake in Maine

This is a valuable introduction to an emerging field, one that is not yet widely known. Coach Graham explains the role of the life coach, how to choose a coach and what to expect from the relationship between coach and client. Just as importantly, he explains how to avoid the scams one might expect in a profession that is poorly regulated, if at all. Highly recommended.
