Coaching and Mentoring examines how to create conversations which encourage personal development; exploring the ways in which we can interact to help support and improve performance. The second edition of this highly successful book has been radically updated to reflect recent dramatic changes in this important area. The authors demonstrate how important it is to relate theoretical models to specific situations in order to gain real practical benefits. This edition includes new chapters on the awareness of individual differences as well as a review of the models used by coaches and mentors. The book provides a complete resource for those who want to help and support people to learn more effectively.
