The Coach’s Mind Manual combines the latest findings from neuroscience, psychology, and mindfulness research to provide an accessible framework to help coaches and leadership development specialists improve their awareness of the mind, enhancing their coaching practice. Syed Azmatullah explains how such knowledge can be used to guide clients on a journey of self-discovery, facilitating transformational changes and enriching their performance and personal lives. Part One considers the mind’s management committee, the cerebral cortex, and how its contrasting functions can be accessed to improve problem solving skills. Part Two considers the mind’s middle management, the limbic system, balancing executive direction with our social and emotional needs, driving motivation around core values. Part Three examines how the environment, via the body, influences our mental infrastructure at various stages in life, guiding the selection of interventions. Part Four looks at interpersonal dynamics and how to maximise team performance. Part Five considers the power of collaboration for generating the culture needed to improve the sustainability of our global community. Each section contains self-reflection exercises and experiential role-play to help clients derive benefit from their new personal insights. Coaches are encouraged to combine the broad range of concepts presented with their own experience, creating a contextually-driven coaching process. By focusing on the mind as the target for coaching interventions Azmatullah establishes a comprehensive framework for achieving transformational change. The Coach’s Mind Manual is ideal for all professionals engaged in adult development including executive coaches, business coaches, human resource development professionals, leadership development professionals, management consultants and organisational development professionals.

We see patterns of leadership throughout human history. Prehistoric leaders who, just as leaders do today, used power and influence to create co-operation amongst their group, have all played their part in our surviving, thriving and evolving as a species. Of course, leadership is infinitely more complex in the modern world, comprising of global teams, large anonymous networks and communications technology. But have our brains evolved as quickly as our societies? In this fascinating, enlightening and useful book, leadership development coach and change agent Graeme Findlay walks you through the evolutionary basis for the dramatic increases in leadership power from pre-history through to today. He explains how the brain function that made our primate ancestors successful still exists within us, and how this "inner primate" can sabotage your leadership effectiveness. He then proceeds to outline effective strategies for transcending this "inner voice" to empower your leadership. In the same way, he shows how you can tap into the motivations of the inner primate within members of your extended team, to better understand dynamics, and transform your leadership impact. With the inner primate dealt with, he moves on to explore the next two major evolutionary steps, personified as the gossip and the dreamer. Drawing from a wide variety of case studies, including Donald Trump, Kim Jong-Un, and Martin Luther King, as well as the author's own consulting experiences, this book consistently shows you how to apply evolutionary leadership theory to your own practice, to become a more aware, mindful, impactful, and successful leader.
