Passmore, Jonathan (Ed.) (2022) Coaching Tools: 101 coaching tools and techniques for executive coaches, team coaches, mentors and supervisors: Volume 1 (WeCoach!) Paperback – February 25, 2022
Coaching Tools, Volumes 1 and 2 offer a rich source of applied tools and techniques that have hitherto not existed and could never have been achieved without the valuable contributions and support of the 90+ coaches who helped create these books. Contained within these 2 volumes are over 200 tried-and-tested ‘favourite’ coaching tools. The tools are varied, reflecting the range of contributors, and drawing disparately from Behavioural, Cognitive Behavioural, Motivational Interviewing, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Compassion, Positive Psychology, Psychodynamic, Gestalt, Solution-focused, Mindfulness, and Neuroscience frameworks amongst others. The contributors include Marshall Goldsmith, Richard Boyatzis, Tammy Turner, Peter Hawkins, Suzy Green, Christian van Nieuwerburgh, Jonathan Passmore, and many more. Fully illustrated in colour, each tool is presented in a simple to use step-by-step guide, making this an essential contribution to every coach’s and leader’s personal library.

Brock, Vikki (2015) “Book Self: Supervision in Coaching.” Library of Professional Coaching. https://libraryofprofessionalcoaching.com/concepts/strategy/future-of-coaching/book-shelf-supervision-in-coaching/
Coaching supervision is the latest area in publication of books for coaches. Edited by Jonathan Passmore and supported by the Association for Coaching, Supervision in Coaching: Understanding coaching supervision, ethics, CIPD and the law is a 2011 addition to books on this topic. Chapters in each of the four parts of this book are authored by a variety of coach practitioners, with Jonathan Passmore writing the introductory chapter that provides an overview of the entire book.
What is interesting about the contributors to this book is that 17 are psychologist/counselors from the UK; seven are business people from the UK, and the remaining five are business people from the US. This aligns with the beginning of the coaching supervision movement in the UK by psychology professionals who have become coaches and bring with them the supervision mindset from psychology and counseling.
