Product description

The aim of this book is to provide the coach or mentor with a wider portfolio of techniques and approaches to helping others than would normally be gained from practical experience or attending a course. In compiling these techniques, the authors have drawn on experience from their coaching and mentoring activities, and added to these with the help of other experienced professionals within the field. They have clustered these into a number of themes, which now make up the framework for the main body of this book. Techniques for Coaching & Mentoring is designed to offer the reader a range of interventions that they can employ when working one-to-one with others. The purpose is to enlarge the range of techniques that you can use in this important work of helping, and thus make it more effective, the book can be used in a number of ways: *As general preparation - thinking through a range of techniques that you might be faced with in the future and seeing the techniques offered here as extending the range of the possible. *As specific preparation - if you feel stuck with a particular client, use the contents, index and flicking through the chapters as a means of finding something that may help to unlock possibility for the client. *As an agenda for a course on coaching or mentoring where the various techniques for different stages can be used as a source for practice.

Review quote

No one is better equipped to write such a book than the two Davids Clutterbuck and Megginson. Their detailed and meticulous work will serve as an invaluable resource for many coaches. Many of them may already be naturally using a combination of the techniques offered, but they way this book reinforces and contextualises them will help to consolidate the best practices currently deployed. The many case studies to which the authors refer well illustrate the techniques in application. I particularly welcomed the prominence given to Relationship (Chapter 1) and to Self-Knowledge (Chapter 4) the basis and the essence of good coaching and mentoring. John Whitmore, Author of Coaching for Performance and voted Britain's top Business coach in the Independent. The art of facilitating human development implies the eagerness and the ability to call upon multiples tools, disciplines and perspectives. This excellent book provides a wide variety of powerful techniques, concrete case studies and useful resources.
