I appreciate the insights of Coaching Athletes to Be Their Best, and its focus on the motivational power of a common purpose.

Joe Torre Chief Baseball Officer, MLB; Four-time World Series Champion Manager, New York Yankees
This book is a ‘must have’ for coaches in all sports. As a coach, I want to guide my athletes to greatness, and get frustrated when I am unable to effectively do so. This book provides insight and instruction on how to use MI to help my athletes determine their own course of action and become the performers they want to be.

Matt Ruhle Head Football Coach, Baylor University
Motivational Interviewing can enable coaches and psychologists to unlock the solutions that lie just beneath the surface of everyday challenges. I highly recommend this book.
