E-Coaching is an innovative approach for making coaching more accessible to a wider audience through the use of online text based media. The emphasis is on how to use language effectively in online communication and is therefore an invaluable resource for both coaches and clients… This is a recommended read for those wishing to take advantage of the opportunities emerging from globalization and who want to offer a valuable addition to face-to-face coaching practice.
