IN THIS SUMMARY

In Coaching Up and Down the Generations, Lisa Haneberg reviews general information, insights, and observations about coaching, then applies them to the increasingly common situation in which the coach comes from one generation and the person receiving the coaching (“the performer”) comes from another. The assumptions that people make about each other—whether based on appearance, comfort level with technology, or codes of business conduct—are the main obstacle to making intergenerational coaching experiences work. Haneberg believes that traits such as agility, flexibility, and openness are essential to successful coaching. She tries to avoid being too prescriptive, based on her belief that great coaching cannot and should not be defined as a set of practices or as a competency.
