“Coaching with NLP” is a must-read book. My assessor recommended it to me, when I was looking for resources about NLP and how to refine my coaching style and enrich my coaching practice. And this book definitely exceeded my expectations.
Written by James O’Connor and Andrea Lages, both global authorities in their field, “Coaching with NLP, How to be a Master Coach – A practical guide to getting the best of yourself and others” is fascinating and a gold mine of learning and resources.
Below is my feedback, written from a student coach’s perspective, studying the personal performance diploma, and with no NLP training
This book is not about coaching, it is not about NLP either. As its title says, it is about coaching with NLP, and about the “art of coaching”. Acting is one of the NLP presuppositions that coaching implements, which makes coaching so distinctive from other techniques. “If you want to understand, act” is the mantra of the book. So true.
It is a challenge to capture in a brief review the learning one can get out of “Coaching with NLP”, from reading it and from practicing what it suggests. Also, each coach, with their background and personal history, will grow at their own pace. I specifically enjoyed the chapter dedicated to transition and the “transition model”, which shows the complete coaching cycle and put into light the issue of loss and the role of habits or “anchors” as known in NLP.
I also got a lot of insight into how to use some NLP concepts and tools, especially calibration and language, more precisely during the intake process and the reality phase. They are so vital to build rapport and trust, “which are prerequisites of a good coaching relationship”, and they help generate those creative options in the early stages of the coaching relationship and also further down the line.
In summary, I strongly recommend this book. It will benefit the reader from the start of their training and throughout their learning and practice. This book stays close to me, so that I can consult it when I need to or when I feel like it.

Coaching is a progressive process where stumbling blocks are converted into stepping stones and where each step brings the client closer to the fulfillment of their desires and potential. Imagine how much more successful you could be if you awakened your inner coach?
