32 Activities on Coaching and Mentoring

Front Cover
Coaching and mentoring are popular approaches to developing people and enhancing organizational performance. Yet material that will help coaches and mentors to improve their own practice is still hard to come by. This title in the Gower activity series will be welcomed by anyone looking for guidance.The authors begin by explaining how to set up different types of mentoring programmes. The activities that follow cover every aspect of the subject, from assessing your own mentoring style to 'learning to let go'. There are exercises to enhance skills, and others concerned with understanding the processes involved. Some are designed to be run in groups, some as one-to-one sessions and some as self-study.As with all Gower training manuals, detailed instructions for each activity are supplied, together with ready-to-copy masters of any supporting items. The material in this manual is firmly rooted in the realities of coaching and mentoring, and there is even an index that matches the activities to the problems most commonly encountered.This is a resource that can be recommended for its immediate relevance to managers, trainers, coaches and mentors alike in any type of organization.
