Coaching is an emerging profession across all walks of life. Coaches work in communities, businesses, governments, private and not-for-profit settings to assist people to grow personally and professionally. More people are engaging their own life, business, career transition, leadership, or executive coaches to help them solve their life or work problems and reach their goals more quickly and easily. Coaches are sounding boards to clients, putting their agenda front and center and the clients back in control of their life. The coach works nonjudgmentally with clients to understand their situation and needs, help them become more self-aware and resourceful, uncover insights into themselves and what they need to do, and stand side by side with them as they take the actions they need to take. Why positive psychology coaching? Because before people can change their behavior, they often need to change their mind-set. A client’s mind-set may be positive and supportive of change or negative and is holding them back. Coaching from a positive psychology perspective means that the coach and client are always focusing on what’s right in life rather than what’s wrong. The coach works with the client to identify their limiting beliefs and reframe them into positives. Together, they identify solutions or goals and develop action plans to achieve these outcomes. Change can happen very quickly once beliefs and actions are aligned and supported by positive affirmations that boost self-esteem and self-efficacy. Every day, we try to find meaning in life, and when we don’t, we become confused and search for answers. We can look back and despair, or we can look forward into a compelling future. Many people neither want nor need to see a therapist or counselor, and they choose to see a professional coach instead to help them resolve their situation and find greater happiness in life.

This book is about learning to live your life more fully. It doesn't promise you abundant joy, the relationship of your dreams, untold riches or miracle cures. But what it does promise you is a comprehensive programme of personal development, change and growth that is highly effective. This coaching programme has been developed with two audiences in mind. The first is those who wish to coach themselves to success and who are confident about achieving positive results once they know the basic framework. The second audience is those who work as coaches and who are looking for new ideas and frameworks that they can build into their existing practice. Whatever has drawn you to this book - whether it is because you feel you have reached a crossroads in your life, because you have a very specific goal in mind, or because you are a coach looking for some fresh ideas - there is something here for you.

This volume provides theoretical perspectives on and approaches to the development or enhancement of positive psychological capacities within various multi-cultural professional and organizational contexts. Specifically, it presents theoretical frameworks for the identification, development and optimization of positive psychological capacities through a contemporary, multi-cultural and multi-disciplinary lens. In recent years, the applicability of positive psychological intervention (PPI) techniques has transposed the boundaries of clinical practice into a wide array of complementary domains such as law, education, business and even design sciences such as architecture. These interventions target the enhancement of positive psychological capacities (e.g. strength-identification and use; high-performance learning; appreciative design; job-crafting) in order to not only improve individual functioning, well-being and the treatment of various forms of psychopathology but also to enhance team functioning/performance, organizational growth and community development. Despite its importance, very little research has been done on the design of PPIs applicable to multi-cultural contexts. The contributions to this volume provide insights into this hitherto neglected area of research.
