"This book is a welcome contribution to the coaching literature. It provides a full appreciation of the range of contributions from Gestalt Psychology to the field of coaching. Every coach will find something here that will both expand and deepen their thinking and their practice. This book emphasizes two core aspects that are central to quality coaching - how we turn up (our presence as a coach) and how we attend to the context in which the work is happening." Peter Hawkins, Professor of Leadership, Henley Business School, Chairman, Renewal Associates, and author of many books on coaching, team coaching, supervision and leadership. "This is a treasure-chest of ideas, methods and frameworks from a wide range of experienced Gestaltists that you can dip into and discover gems that will stretch your thinking, deepen your understanding and enrich your practice of Gestalt Coaching" John Leary-Joyce, President, Academy of Executive Coaching; author, The Fertile Void - Gestalt Coaching at Work. "This important book presents a diverse collection of papers on organizational coaching from a Gestalt theoretical perspective. These articles are tied together by their focus on process, creativity, the `here and now', and relational connectedness - all important concepts of a contemporary Gestalt approach." Joe Melnick PhD, Founding Editor, Gestalt Review; Chair, Cape Cod Training Programme, Gestalt International Study Centre, Co-editor, Mending the World: Social Healing Interventions by Gestalt Practitioners Worldwide.
