Implement Effective Coaching and Mentoring to Increase Business Performance

Coaching and Mentoring (9780749477622)24th November 2016 - Coaching and Mentoring: Practical Techniques for Developing Learning and Performance

Implement Effective Coaching and Mentoring to Increase Business Performance

Available this week, the 3rd edition of Coaching and Mentoring helps develop coaching and mentoring skills at the individual, team or organizational level.

Providing strategies that can be applied to any situation – including life coaching, business coaching and community mentoring – it uses practical tools and best practice to demonstrate how to relate theoretical models to specific situations to gain real benefits.

Over the last 15 years, Coaching and Mentoring has become the go-to guide for anyone looking to develop their coaching and mentoring skills. The new edition has been fully updated to cover the latest thinking and developments in this area including extended coverage of coaching supervision and a brand-new section on practical applications for organizations which includes advice on how to align coaching and mentoring strategies to overall business goals and how to provide evidence for its transformational impact on employee performance.

Advanced praise for the book has come from Professor Peter Hawkins, who said, ‘It is great to see this new updated version of Coaching and Mentoring, with great examples of how coaching and mentoring can make a difference in so many different contexts’. Similarly, Sarah Sandbrook, HR Director at T-Systems Ltd, has said, ‘Coaching is now acknowledged as a vital part of any organisation's development but few know how to effectively turn theory into practice. The expertise of the OCM over a number of years helped us to develop individual, team and organisational capability at a pace that seemed impossible at the start. The wisdom and experience we benefitted from are encapsulated brilliantly in this book’.
