Narrative Coaching


Product Description
Product Details


"David lives, eats, and breathes narrative; it's what he does and who he is. It is like he can see into people's souls through their narratives and help them see all of who they are. When we taught together, it was evident how profound and powerful narratives are in revealing and healing our deepest shadows. Narrative Coaching illustrates this important work in a way that we can use in our work and lives. Brilliant!"
-- Donna Karlin, The Shadow Coach, Canada

"David is a global thought-leader in Narrative Coaching, and this book will stimulate, educate, and provide valuable insights and tools for all coaches. An essential read."
-- Anthony M. Grant, PhD, Director of the Coaching Psychology Unit, University of Sydney, Australia

"David is one of my favorite coaching thought leaders, shining bright as a coaching scholar. His star also radiates warmth and compassion, poured into narrative coaching, a coaching domain David founded. This book integrates the best of David's thinking over the past 15 years. It is a rich and evocative resource for everyone interested in coaching."
-- Margaret Moore, Founder and CEO of Wellcoaches

"This book is a powerful source of inspiration and resources for coaches who have outgrown the simplistic and mechanical models taught in many coaching programs and who are ready to take their skills to a new level."
-- Prof. Konstantin Korotov, PhD, Director of the Center for Leadership Development Research, ESMT-Berlin

"David Drake charts the waters for any coach or trainer willing to help a fellow soul change the stories that bind him or her. Wonderful examples and a healthy respect for the diverse and unpredictable variability of two humans talking (or sitting in silence) makes this book entertaining as well as useful."
-- Annette Simmons, Group Process Consulting, US

"David has taken his doctoral research and created a globally recognized body of work. It has been a joy to watch narrative coaching evolve and David along with it. His systemic approach to developing people is on the leading edge of coaching. I highly recommend this book for both its scholarship and its profound insights on practice."
-- Judy Stevens-Long, PhD, PhD Faculty, Fielding Graduate University, School of Human & Organizational Development, US

"David Drake understands -- truly and deeply understands -- how the stories we tell about ourselves are the genesis of our identities, and from that deep awareness he has pioneered the field of narrative coaching. What an astonishing achievement, and what a potent contribution to the field of human development! If your vocation calls you now into this journey of learning, then this book is your map... and Dr. David Drake is your wise and compassionate guide."
-- David Hutchens, Author and organizational story consultant

"There are very few coaching approaches that are fully theory-based and also serve as a sensitive guide to practice. Narrative coaching as developed by David Drake represents an outstanding example of such an approach. It includes a skillful synthesis of the best ideas in the field of human change, made richer by his years of thoughtful refinement and integration into coaching practice. This book truly extends the knowledge of the coaching field and beyond."
-- Tatiana Bachkirova, PhD, Co-director of the International Centre for Coaching and Mentoring Studies, UK
