The Career Coaching Handbook

The Career Coaching Handbook, written by Julia Yates, demonstrates how coaching research explains practice and how practice benefits from research. Combining the latest research into careers with the most up-to-date coaching approaches, Julia shows how to effectively apply coaching techniques to the world of career support. 

Presented in three parts, the book is accessibly written with a solid evidence-based foundation and covers developments in theory and research and applies this knowledge to the real world:

    •  Part I, Theories of career, looks at 21st century career paths, job satisfaction
        and career changes - both planned and unplanned.
    •  Part II, Career coaching approaches, examines coaching strategies that
        are applicable to career coaching in particular.
    •  Part III, Coaching into the world of work, covers specific real-world situations in
        which coaching is beneficial, from job search strategies to CV and interview
        coaching. Evidence and research is used throughout to demonstrate the most effective
        strategies for coaching.

The Career Coaching Handbook provides an essential introduction for students or practitioners who are interested in developing their own practice, finding new and improved ways to support clients and understanding the theories that underpin effective career coaching practice.
