Her straightforward and accessible approach makes even the masterful coach sit up and take notes! Marion’s life and professional experience as a coach and trainer is evident on every page of her book. As a training director and teacher, I integrated Marion’s coaching acumen and students loved it. After 18 years of coaching, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had so much more to learn! Soon my coaching became almost magical in its effectiveness, and I earned my MCC. I could not have achieved it without the practical tools and wisdom Marion has in her book. I believe it will become THE book about coaching!

I am honestly blown away by the absolute ‘usability’ of The HeART of Laser-Focused Coaching!” As a long-time master level coach, I rarely find any “how-to” books as meaningful and easy to immediately incorporate into my coaching…with concepts, reminders and actual steps I can take NOW to further my coaching skills. I so appreciate what Marion has put together in such a readable and usable manner.

“Are you looking for a good resource to ensure great results when you coach? Basic coach training can only take you so far. Even though I have been coaching for over 20 years, The HeART of Laser Coaching gave me new techniques and jogged my memory about practices I had forgotten but were once significant in my client interactions and business success. I am grateful for Marion’s commitment to document the best of her coach training in one book at that easy-to-follow and apply. I will keep my copy close by to regularly refresh my skills.”
