Is working with, and through, people important to getting results? If so, the aptitudes and skills in this book should be of value to you.
It presents the fundamental mindsets and perspectives to enable you to harness the potential within yourself and others through a coaching approach; it is not a book to teach you coaching skills.
The authors each have many years of line management responsibilities, one-to-one coaching experience and tutoring within a variety of organisations plus high level coaching and mentoring qualifications. The book shares the perspectives, models and theories which have inspired them to learn and try out coaching approaches as they developed themselves and their staff.
The result is a combination of practical experience rooted in sound evidence-based research sprinkled with humour.
