Overview  

Thoughts, reflections and experiences voiced by ancient sages appear in this book as 'coaching conversations'. Their wisdom creates a vibrant landscape populated with insights which help us to reflect upon and discuss emotions encountered in personal transformation and constant workplace change. They allow us to process past experiences and emotions in order to move on.

James Carlopio shows us that coaching for personal improvement has occurred since time-immemorial. These ancient quotes illuminate modern-day socio-cognitive constructs and techniques used in coaching psychology. The 'coaching conversation' itself is grounded in the constructivist-narrative approaches used within Solution-Focused Brief Therapy.

These ancient quotes will assist readers to undergo personal transitions, Executive Coaches to facilitate workplace change and Life Coaches in personal development. Positive Psychology and important areas in coaching psychology are referenced in the Introduction and section openings.

Supported by a subject index, this luminous work is grouped into sections addressing:

  • awareness of self and others
  • life, death, health and happiness
  • wisdom, communication and learning
  • achievement, goals and effort

The text is designed to help people access emotion, express emotion, acknowledge emotion, release emotion and move on gracefully to happier, more successful and less stressed lives.

Reviews

James Carlopio's breadth of experience in academic and corporate circles is rare. This is a book to be dipped into and savoured over time.. a comprehensive and deeply humane collection of wisdom from the ancients with accompanying daily affirmations for the road.
John Hale - Corporate Alchemist

Ancient Wisdom for Modern Minds has the potential to be one of the rare qualitative, post-modern (and humanistic) contributions to the epistemology of coaching psychology.. it will be a valuable coaching and educational tool - while providing revealing insights to professional and lay readers alike!.

If you cannot talk about something you cannot fix it. People need to have mechanisms for processing their emotions. Permission to discuss and process emotions is one of the greatest gifts that coaches and counsellors can give.
