Book Club

Commences 2nd October 2023

Hello and welcome to the Book Club!

If you'd like to take a couple of hours out each month to talk about and reflect on some interesting publications related to the world of coaching, come and join our FREE online Book Club. 

Whatever your route to coaching has been, you will get most value out of this club if you have had a notional 60 hours of coach-specific training and are interested in deepening your knowledge and thinking about coaching and your personal and professional development.


Before the club meets, you read the suggested book and think about another book of your own choice which is related to coaching and which you'd like to discuss. Your ‘book’ might be a podcast, a YouTube video or similar. At the club meeting, you’ll have the chance to talk about both with the group.


The club meets monthly from October 2nd, 2023, to February 5th, 2024, from 6.30 till 8.30pm online via Zoom. Please be punctual and plan to stay for the whole 2 hours.

The evening is in two parts. The first hour is for you as a small group to share your responses to the suggested book. The second part is open for you to introduce whatever else you are reading, and to discuss this with your group. Of course, you may decide to devote the second half of the evening to the same book you talked about in the first half!

CD will host the book club, however, there is no formal input from our side. This is an opportunity for you to learn from and with your colleagues, to deepen your thinking and to share what interests you at the moment.
