Hi. I’m Robert Ellis. I’m an executive coach, founder of Coaching From Essence, a training and community for extraordinary coaches, and the author of the Amazon #1 bestselling book Coaching From Essence: Create a Thriving Practice Doing Powerful Work With Clients You Love.
Everything you need to know to create a thriving practice doing powerful work with clients you love.
Whether you're an executive coach or a life coach, this book captures the magic of why people come to you, and how to deliver truly transformational results for your clients. I love the simple frameworks and the stories he uses to bring them to life. I'm already employing many of these with my clients and they resonate universally, automatically, and deeply. Right up there alongside The Prosperous Coach and Masterful Coaching - the bibles of coaching and practice building.
This book is such a wonderful combination of the conceptual and practical, the intuitive and mechanical art of coaching. From large scale frameworks to 'what to do when...' options this is a fantastic manual for coaches who are just starting out and those with much more experience. Readable, accessible, insightful and pragmatic - I can't recommend this highly enough.
This book is like sitting in a fireside chat with Robert, absorbing his profoundly wise and profoundly simple approaches to coaching. Sometimes, a new idea can feel so true that it lands like common sense - all the pieces fitting together so seamlessly and effortlessly. Robert's metaphors, stories and models hit like that - like powerful truths you knew all along... This book isn’t just for coaches who want a more effortless and human approach to doing this work, it’s for anyone who wants to be deeply helpful to their clients, their teams, their organization, and to lead conversations in a more impactful way.
I was originally drawn to Robert's work because I wanted what the title promises-to create a thriving practice doing powerful work with clients I love... What I was not expecting was that the way this book transformed my coaching practice was really the result of the way it transformed my life... The generosity in this book is beyond words. Robert openly shares not only his decades of experience as a master coach, but also lays bare the lessons and insights gained from painful passages in his own life.
