Product Description:

Whether you are a seasoned coach or a new one, exceptional executive coaching can be achieved by accessing the great coach within yourself. This book is your resource to become an exceptional coach by showing you how your experiences, knowledge, and intuition can be leveraged to inspire your clients. To be sure, there are critical skills to master and practices to follow, but at the heart of it is the connection you create between your unique coaching approach and your client.

Becoming an Exceptional Executive Coach is the first book to bring these diverse elements together to guide you in developing your own personal model of coaching. Using this book, you will learn about core coaching competencies across three broad categories—building relationships, communicating, and fostering learning—and identify your own areas of strength in each. As you begin to outline your personal model of coaching, you’ll get practical reinforcement in the form of real-life case examples and master coach commentary that will help expand your frame of reference and repertoire of skills in helping your clients.

Becoming an Exceptional Executive Coach shows you how to manage a coaching relationship professionally and consistently, encourage trust, manage the engagement, and garner organizational support. You’ll learn how to:

• Use and leverage your particular knowledge, skills, and intuition for each coaching engagement

• Build your confidence and competence as an executive coach

• Gather the information you’ll need to help clients articulate and meet ambitious goals

• Give appropriate and useful feedback

• Plan for your client’s long-term development

• Help your client use your partnership as a catalyst for positive change

• Develop your client’s leadership potential

• Work through inevitable challenges

• Bring your coach/client relationships to empowering conclusions

• Build on the highlights of the relationship to foster continuing client progress, and your own learning

• And much more

The book is filled with clear descriptions of executive coaching practices; case examples from multiple perspectives; sample coaching documents, such as contracts and development plans; and guidelines for creating your own unique model of executive coaching.

You may have thought that becoming an executive coach was too big a stretch. This book shows how you can become an exceptional coach in your own way.

1. How do textbook rentals work?
It’s simple. Begin by searching for your textbook by ISBN (10 or 13-digit number that can be found on the back cover of each book), title, author or keyword. Next select how long you would like to rent the book then add it to your cart. Repeat for each book you’re looking for. After completing the order we’ll ship them to you and you’ll also receive a prepaid mailer. Return your books in the mailer by your rental due date.
2. Is renting a textbook better than purchasing it?
We offer both! You can buy or rent the book through Campus Book Rentals. It’s up to you to decide which option best meets your educational needs.
3. How do I track my order?
Login to your account here, you’ll see your current rentals listed textbook rentals listed with a yellow box that says “track”. Click the box to view the tracking number. *Not all books will have a tracking number since they may be sent from one of our partners. Tracking numbers will be updated as they become available.
4. How do I return my books?
When you rent textbooks from Campus Book Rentals you’ll receive a prepaid mailer. When it’s nearing your due date you’ll place your books inside the mailer and take it to the nearest USPS drop box or Post Office. If you don’t receive a mailer you can print a return label from your account. Return shipping is prepaid so please use either of the two methods to ensure they arrive at the correct facility.
5. Can I write or highlight in my book?
Of course! Just remember that future students will rent the same book after you, so please be respectful.
6. How much money can renting my books save?
It depends on the book. Generally renting textbooks can save you up to 80% compared to a new textbook.
7. Are Campus Book Rentals’ books the same as my bookstore’s?
Yes! We only ship US edition textbooks, which are the same as your campus bookstore.
8. Do access codes or other supplements come with a textbook rental?
One time use access codes and other supplemental materials are NOT included with rental books and must be purchased separately.
9. What if I don’t return my rental?
If your book rental is not returned by the due date, your credit card will be charged a non-return fee, equal to the replacement value for the book.
10. Can I purchase my book after I rent it?
Certainty! You’re only charged the difference between what you already paid and the value of the book at the time you initially rented. Login to your account and choose to purchase your book and it’ll walk you through the checkout process.

Make A Difference

At Campus Book Rentals our company is guided by a single question, "How are we making education more affordable?" We know that getting a college education is quickly becoming a rite of passage for students and is becoming more important every year. In order to make education more attainable for the 99%, we started renting textbooks so students could avoid high purchase prices and buyback programs. We know it's a better way, and we're going to show everyone how to make a college education affordable again.
