This book celebrates two important aspects of the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games. (1) For those involved in any aspect of Olympism, and particularly coaches and athletes, London 2012 was about realising dreams, achieving success and participating in competitive sport at the highest level. This book sets out some of these dreams and the part coaches play in this. (2) The book also looks at the notion of ‘coaching-for-performance’ and does this from an international and multi-sport perspective. From interviews with Olympic coaches, the experiences of those working in the field of high performance and from applied sport researchers, the book uses the metaphor of the ‘coach-as-alchemist’ in order to capture the dynamics of coach-athlete relationships and performance. Sports such as diving, swimming, gymnastics, skiing are included as well as individual and team sports. The book is set within the context of elite sport, high performance and coaching. Its contents illuminate two important kinds of reflective practice: (a) Reflection-ON-action (b) Reflection-FOR-action. The style of presentation includes narratives, reflective conversations, ethnographic work, interview analysis and video-clips available on-line. This book was published as a special issue of Reflective Practice.

"Much more than an outstanding toolkit, this hand book is an essential and rich resource for professional coaches (new and experienced) and for leaders, managers and parents facilitating informal coaching conversations. Angus McLeod and Will Thomas have artfully distilled key frameworks and tools for facilitating sustainable performance, wellbeing and humanity in both coach and coachee. Jargon free and filled with immediately useable and highly impactful models, check-lists and downloadable resources, this guide will quickly become a well used and trusted companion." Michelle Duval – Managing DirectorEquilibrio International "It offers a wealth of wise suggestions from two highly experienced coaches and readers may choose to read it right through or dip into it using the List of Tools, Glossary and Index. The keys to effective coaching, in the view of McLeod and Thomas, are questioning, listening and silence; they offer a very nice and easy exercise enabling coaches to balance all three. Among the many other offerings I like are the tools for checking and working with coachees' emotions and the 17 'starter questions' for coaching conversations." Dr Susie Linder-Pelz, author of 'NLP Coaching’' (Kogan Page) The Performance Coaching Toolkit is a practical handbook for anyone wishing to improve their coaching skills. It is enriched by methods taken from the authors' understanding and development of practical learning techniques as well as from their work in education, personal development and within various commercial organizations. The approach of the book is concise and informative: all the tools sit within a practical framework for developing and enhancing your own coaching style. This framework is based on the STEPPPA Model which is built around: Subject focus Target focus Emotional focus Perception focus Plan focus Pace and Act focus The toolkit also provides a coherent and practical tool for keeping in touch with the coaching process as a structured journey. The layout has been designed to enable fast access to key information and the book has links to other related models and tools, so that the complexity of coaching processes, with time, becomes even more comprehensible. This toolkit is key reading for coaches and prospective coaches in all sectors, particularly those who want a rapid and accessible route to understanding coaching practice and who want a reliable source book for coaching methods.
