The Coaching Manager: Developing Top Talent in Business offers a tested approach to developing top performers. While most coaching books focus on performance problems, The Coaching Manager presents a developmental coaching methodology that that managers can use to help skilled and competent employees excel to even higher levels, experience greater engagement with their organizations, and at the same time promote their personal development. It is based on the experience of practicing managers, drawing on research, teaching and consulting contacts with over 4000 leaders from all business disciplines who use coaching in their work. Clearly written, without jargon, specific coaching techniques are illustrated through the use of short case studies and self-assessment exercises that will help the reader learn to apply the principles of The Coaching Manager quickly.

The second edition has been updated with new ideas and cases that will show how developmental coaching can be integrated with all phases of the talent management process.
