Individual Excellence

Individual Excellence


This detailed practical guide covers topics such as Preference and ability, learning styles, values and motivation, problem solving styles in the workplace. This E-book can help a professional coach understand human behaviour.

It also includes an extensive and searching self-examination questionnaire, to enable the coachee to identify his or her innate ‘competencies’, or preferences for styles of living and working, and to apply these to his or her current working environment.  Very practical to use in your coaching sessions.

The E-book is a practical guide that does not plan to ‘change’ anyone’s life but rather help people, to be happy with the one they have. This E-book aims to a constructive and enjoyable read.

Description :

Individual Excellence

This 115 page e-book is your essential guide to coaching Individual Excellence management and will quickly give you a solid grounding in the subject.


Individual Excellence in your coaching activity


The tools within this e-book can be used when coaching others or for their own personal and professional development.

In our own work as coaches and management development practitioners, we use the twin tools of subject knowledge and self-knowledge to bring to managers a broader and deeper perspective on their working lives. We hope that this E-book will do the same for its readers.

Carl Jung, one of the founding fathers of modern psychology, whose work forms the model on which this book is based. Jung said that we are all born with an innate preference for certain ways of living and working, just as we are born with an innate preference for writing with our left or right hand.

The same is true of our innate personality preferences. Dissatisfaction or inefficiency in some aspect of our life is very often a result of having to use functions of our personality which are not those we would prefer.

This book, then, is unlikely to change your coachees life. What we hope it may do is to help them to be happier with the one they’re stuck with. At the end of the day, that has always seemed to us to be the preferable option
