Book Review – Coaching for improved work performance – Ferdinand Fournies

June 14, 2010

What’s the point? This book focuses on the idea that you can get better performance out of employees through positive coaching. Rarely do negative actions result in anything other than fear and poor performance. The book gives techniques and tips for improving performance and tackling potential problems. Strategies are presented for dealing with employees that are not quite up to par.

How was it? I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I thought that the insights presented and the strategies detailed in the book could be easily applied to my current position. The book provided several good ideas on how to approach the same problem, tailored to the individual.

Who should read it? People who manage others, from LSE to EMs.
