Seven Roles for Facilitating Leader Development

Praise for The Mindful Coach

"Success in business is predicated on eliciting the best from
people. The Mindful Coach clearly articulates the essentials of how
to do this. As someone who believes deeply in the potential of all
people, I found Silsbee's approach both practical and profound.
This is a must-read for everyone concerned with people and
learning."—Arthur M. Blank, philanthropist; cofounder, The
Home Depot; and owner and CEO, Atlanta Falcons

"The Mindful Coach is not just another coaching model. It is a
frame of reference for anyone involved in developing people. This
highly readable book should serve as a reference for anyone
genuinely concerned about helping others. It has had a significant
impact on the way I approach coaching and developing
others."—James N. Bassett, M.E?d., employee development,
Institute of Nuclear Power Operations

"The Mindful Coach digs deeply, offering a lens and structure
for understanding the intimate and necessary connection between
relationships and human development. No other skill set, knowledge,
or awareness is more important to educators, leaders, and managers
than what is presented in this precious volume."—Robert C.
Pianta, Ph.D., dean, Curry School of Education, University of

"This revised edition provides the structure for presence,
through which new solutions become available. This book itself is a
practice in the art of 'becoming,' while providing a clear action
framework for powerfully engaging others with their own
development. Silsbee has provided a gift to leaders, teachers, and
coaches!"—Connie Maltbie-Shulas, manager, V-22 Training
Systems, Boeing

"This book has broad appeal not only for coaches, but also for
managers, executives, and consultants. Leaders of all kinds can
benefit from Silsbee's clear and caring process for bringing out
the best in people. This is a must-read book for anyone who wants
to jump-start themselves and others on their journey to their
potential."—Diana Whitney, Ph.D., author, The Power of
Appreciative Inquiry

"This is the guide for leaders committed to helping others
learn. The seven roles will help any leader facilitate more
meaningful development conversations. This new edition engaged me
instantly, with immediate applications in key
relationships."—Darelyn "DJ" Mitsch, MCC, president, The
Pyramid Resource Group; former president, The International Coach
