Default Best book on the Art of coaching

I was curious if anyone had suggestions for books about how to coach as opposed to how to coach a specific sport I am looking for some materials to have assistant coaches study in our program.

What aspect of coaching? Like, the psychology of how to persuade people to do things they want you want them to or how to properly coach form?

Well how to coach form falls more under the sports specific aspect what I am looking for is more about how to create good relationships with members how to cultivate authority etc.

This has been the go-to book for decades:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Win-Frie...m_srch_tsr_rtr

Other than that, the golden rule is...listen and then listen some more....most people will tell you what they are looking for.
