Coaching and Mentoring: Theory and Practice
Coaching and mentoring are fast becoming essential aspects of modern managerial practice. And with this growth comes an increasing number of students embarking on mentoring courses. Authors Bob Garvey, Paul Stokes, and David Megginson have provided the first authoritative text with a comprehensive overview and critical grounding in the key concepts, models, and research studies in coaching and mentoring. This is an essential tool by which to gain a critical and contemporary understanding of this field. The authors of Coaching and Mentoring are well respected and trusted scholars in the field. They answer important questions such as 'What does coaching and mentoring involve?' 'What is its value?' 'How can the added value of mentoring be demonstrated and measured?'. Examples are drawn from a variety of sectors, including private businesses, public and voluntary organizations, and schools. Contemporary debates are explained by contributing experts and chapters include features such as case studies, research questions, and helpful tips to support the reader. This book is written for students on CIPD courses and graduate students taking a mentoring and coaching program. It will also be of interest to students taking a course on educational leadership and some social work and nursing students.
