Windy Dryden’s pluralistic approach to coaching informs this uniquely straightforward guide to the coaching alliance. Drawing on examples from Dryden’s own practice, the book explores the four specific domains of the alliance: bonds, views, objectives/goals, and tasks. Dryden explains how these domains are inter-related, and how all four have an impact on the collaborative, negotiated relationship between coach and coachee.

The Coaching Alliance is a clearly written, accessible guide, with one chapter dedicated to each of the four domains. It examines each domain at different stages in the coaching process and includes key points and questions for coaches to consider in sessions with clients. By taking an alliance perspective on coaching, the coach is encouraged to think clearly and constructively about building a working relationship with their coachee, clarifying views, setting goals and completing tasks. Including a wealth of practical information, this concise book will be essential for anyone working with clients in a coaching capacity.
