The Practical Coach

As a part of the Strategic Leadership course, we were asked to read the book "The Practical Coach: Management Skills for Everyday Life by Paula J. Caproni".

I had thought that this would be just another of those books that would have some cheesy stuff on motivation and crafting life but I was completely wrong. The book is very rich in content. A lot of the stuff is common sense( very uncommon) but has content that makes you stop for a second and reflect on how and where your career is heading.There are a battery of tests that are aimed at self awareness. The book has some solid stuff on managing subordinates, boss and peers.

You don't have to be a MBA student to read this book. If possible,get your hands on the book and give it a shot.Some content from the book that I found useful are posted here.
