"Why are you talking about me in the third person, Ben? I'm right here."
"Alice! Hello. I'm just introducing the book."
"Have you said that I'm the star of the story?"
"Of course, Alice."
"Ben, can I introduce Rita and Ronald?"
"Er... well... I'm not sure we should start with talking animals, this is a serious book."
"Of course we should. Rita is a turtle who is an expert coach and she taught Ronald and I how to coach. Oh, and Ronald is a fish!"
"Thank you, Alice!"
The book introduces coaching as an approach for solving problems, managing people and improving performance. Both new and existing coaches, as well as managers and leaders, will improve their skills of listening, asking questions and exploring ideas.
"Good job, Ben. I can't wait to tell the story."
