Book News: October 12th, 2005

By David Clutterbuck and David Megginson.The majority of employers (99%) believe coaching can deliver tangible benefits to both individuals and organisations and 88% now expect their line managers to deliver coaching as part of their day-to-day work. However, 17% do not think that line managers are effective coaches. This book from the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development contains case studies and offers practical advice for organisations using coaching. It also looks at what needs to be considered when implementing a coaching strategy so that it is successful for both the organisation, in terms of improving performance, and the staff, in terms of their development. The authors identify seven stages of coaching and offer guidance for line managers.
