Top-down management is well on its way out (and good riddance!), and the best way to thrive as an organisation in the immediate and long-term future is to adopt a culture of coaching and mentoring. Learn how with this excellent resource!

Many success stories are highlighted in these pages with hints of the challenges in building and sustaining a coaching and mentoring culture. This excellent book offers the reader helpful ways forward to a brighter coaching future
Bob Garvey, Faculty Head of Research, York St John Business School, UK

A hugely rich resource, containing a broad range of information, principles and approaches to the somewhat ethereal topic of how to weave coaching into the fabric of organisational culture. I particularly like its clear reading structure and format, enabling me to navigate quickly to the topics and issues I’m most interested in. Congratulations, another great addition!
Julie Starr, author of The Coaching Manual, The Mentoring Manual, plus others
