Myles Downey presents a comprehensive introduction to coaching in the workplace, and reveals to both managers and professional coaches how to get the best out of their team through the implementation of practices that have made him one of Europe's foremost business coaches. As director of the School of Coaching, Downey continues to teach and work as a consultant within large international organizations. His experience has taught him what works and what doesn't. This book strips away the theory and academic definitions in favour of practical exercises, stories, anecdotes and conversations, leaving the ability to coach in the readers' hands. This extensively revised edition features an entirely new section on Understanding Organizational Change, which deals with the reality of coaching within organizations.
