Review written by: Judy Zimmer
Spoiler alert: Tim Signorelli is a trusted colleague, friend and member of ICF-Minnesota. I was fortunate enough to read a copy of the transcript prior to publication. I love this book!
As an executive coach, I enjoy helping clients fully understand their personal brand, strengths and blind spots. I use several tools for helping clients to clarify this information. In the past year, I have had several opportunities to use this book to maximize performance feedback. Below are 3 reasons why I recommend this book for you:
1. This book is written by seven coaches who have real world experience collecting data. What I enjoy the most about the book is that the authors have not watered down their ideas into group think. You get to see the voice of the various authors and differing opinions. This gives the book and contents an authenticity that I enjoyed.
2. The book is written for coaches and up-front shows that feedback can be difficult to hear and the execution of the feedback (by YOU, coach) matters. This book helps coaches with HOW to deliver feedback.
3. As a resource junkie, I love the fact that the book offer templates, an extensive appendix and free downloads that can be customized for you and your client. These tools have allowed me to focus on collecting and delivering the feedback and not on choosing the right word. I’ve gone back to the templates repeatedly.
If you want to be better at collecting and delivering powerful feedback for your coaching clients, I highly recommend this book. You can learn more and order the book at Fearless Feedback.

"Fearless Feedback" is more than a one-time read book--it's a future reference book for anyone doing coaching. With any aspect of coaching in question, the reader will likely want to refer to a relevant section of "Fearless Feedback." This makes the book hands-on based on need--and practical at the moment. As well, this book is also proactive in helping establish new perspectives and approaches that one may use as needed in the future. The seven authors write in a seamless fashion and engage new insights into an old problem. Brava and bravo! --Dr. Mitchell E. Kusy
