Book Description

Mapping Motivation for Coaching, co-written with Bevis Moynan, is the first of a series of six books that are all linked to the author's Motivational Map toolkit. Each book builds on a different aspect of personal, team, and organisational development. This book is a practical guide to understanding how personal and career development is underpinned by motivation, and how coaching and mapping are perfectly complementary activities. More specifically, it shows how using Motivational Maps within an accepted coaching framework can not only accelerate the process in order to achieve results for the client more quickly, but also go deeper, both in mutual understanding and also the possibility of facilitating a successful outcome; for the client not only needs to understand their issue more effectively through the coaching process, but also needs to be motivated to want to take significant action to deal with it.

Understanding, then, is one thing, but having the energy for follow-through is another, and it is precisely in this area that combining Maps with coaching techniques is so powerful. This highly original approach will enable all coaches everywhere in the world to get into the heart of their clients’ issues faster, better, and be able to help them solve these issues more easily.

As a mapper myself I very much enjoyed this book and the way it has been integrated with elements of NLP, Pareto Law and the Grow Model to name a few. Insightful, engaging and resourceful; this book is ideal for the coach who is serious about their own Continued Professional Development as well as looking into the client drivers that lead to change, growth and achievement in both life and work.
