Coaching Reading List

Coaches are learners, listeners and reflective practitioners who are in service of their coaching clients.

Coaching is a learning journey, and as we as coaches support our coaching clients in fulfilling their personal and professional goals, we also refine our own coaching skills.

A number of people have asked for recommendations for reading and learning more about coaching to develop their knowledge and understanding of this skillset.

What People Say

If you are looking to work with someone who has an infectious passion for making positive change happen, you will love working with Hannah. She has a wealth of experience at a senior leadership level and is hugely committed to the diversity agenda. I have benefitted personally from Hannah’s wisdom and guidance on these issues on a number of occasions.

Andy Buck

Founding DirectorLeadership Matters

When it comes to authentic and courageous leadership, Hannah is unbeatable. Her value-driven approach allows her to be precise and focused whilst taking an empathic approach. One of the leadership traits I admire the most in Hannah is her commitment to asking the difficult questions that others avoid, and this has been evident in her work encouraging Diverse Leaders. She is fearless and highly skilled at driving change, even in complex situations. Hannah is a catalyst and can cause a mindset shift in one conversation. Her leadership creates leaders.
