From a founding member of the coaching movement comes a detailed guide to mastering one of a coach's toughest skills: thoughtfully reflecting clients' words and expressions back to them so they see themselves and their world through new eyes.
“Coaches rely far too much on asking open-ended questions,” says Marcia Reynolds. But questions only seek answers—inquiry provides insight. When, instead of just questions, clients hear their thoughts, opinions, and beliefs spoken by someone else, it prompts them to critically consider how their thinking affects their goals. Reynolds cites the latest brain science to show why reflective inquiry works and provides techniques, tips, and structures for creating breakthrough conversations.
This book will free coaches from the cult of asking the magical question by offering five essential practices of reflective inquiry: focus on the person, not the problem; summarize what is heard and expressed; identify underlying beliefs and assumptions; unwrap the desired outcome; and articulate insights and commitments. Using these practices, combined with a respectful and caring presence, helps create a space where clients feel safe, seen, and valued for who they are. Coaches become change agents who actively recharge the human spirit. And clients naturally dive deeper and develop personalized solutions that may surprise even the coach.

History of Patagonia from Discovery to Conquest. The history of Patagonia is a dramatic account of exploration, endurance, suffering and survival, full of extraordinary characters and amazing natural settings. Covering three centuries since the Renaissance, the stories grip the imagination and invite you to explore this great virgin territory. Venice flourished through the silk and spice routes maintaining a trade monopoly. An amazing discovery made history in 1520, the Strait of Magellan in Patagonia opened the new Southern route to the lndies and the circumnavigation around the world. The trade hegemony over the lndies was fractured, thus balancing the power of commerce towards Spain. These explorations started the search for El Dorado, the golden city that tempted Europeans to explore even further the great territory of Patagonia. Charles Darwin's theory of evolution was inspired in Patagonia with the analysis of its flora and fauna, including the biggest bird on earth, the condor. The discovery of the Beagle Channel by Robert Fitz Roy in 1830 was also a historical accomplishment. Previous visitors such as Sir Francis Drake and Sir Thomas Cavendish from England, sailed the Southern ocean where the Menendez family later built an empire in Punta Arenas and Tierra del Fuego.
More than 300 miles north of the Arctic Circle, Alaska's North Slope is ground zero for global climate change. NewsHour producer April Brown reports the melting ice has opened up opportunity for shipping and other development - industry that could be catastrophic for the way of life of residents.
