Life coaching empowers people to make lasting, positive, inspirational change in their working life and life outside work. As such, coaching is a proven highly successful management technique. Many people seek coaches from within their organisation or visit a professional life coach. But many more still feel uncomfortable asking another person to fulfil this role, or don't have access to the right kind of person, with the right kind of time, or simply don't have the disposable income to employ a professional.

Imagine the cost effectiveness and convenience of having your life coach on tap 24/7. There whenever you need them. You can - it's you.

Based on scientifically validated and tested psychological techniques, this highly practical book will teach you how to make lasting positive, inspirational change in your life. It will help you to identify goals and to reach them. You will learn how to be your own, solution-focussed life coach.

Further reading

- Coaching is still growing in availability and recognition - people who don't have access to a coach or can't afford one are eager to find ways of benefitting from the ideas.

- The large format £15 first edition was the bestselling of all momentum titles by a significant margin - this new smaller format, lower price edition will take it to a much bigger audience.

- The smaller format new edition Change Activist has sold really well.

- The lower price edition of Coach Yourself makes it real competitor to the 'self-help' coaching books such as 'Be Your Own Life Coach.'

- Coach Yourself has the advantage of being written by an academic coaching psychologist - it's not fluff, it's scientfically proven.
