Review:

′I like this book because it is a smooth read with a good critical and questioning  line throughout. There are some innovations, for example, two leadership chapters,  a very interesting chapter on ethics and some well-constructed vignettes to ponder on. If you are interested in  Coaching and Mentoring for Business, buy it now, you won’t be disappointed!′ (Bob Garvey)

′This well-researched and comprehensive overview presents the key themes in coaching and mentoring in an easy-to-read, thoughtful and evidenced manner ― both practical and theoretically sound.′ (David Clutterbuck)

′Grace McCarthy is an insightful observer of the coaching process and in this book she generously shares her learning from many years of practicing, teaching and researching business coaching. Her book strikes a marvellous balance between theory, research and, most importantly, the application of business coaching. It truly is essential reading for anyone interested in the area.′ (Gordon Spence)

′I very much enjoyed reading about so many different aspects, and especially the various models that were presented and which included summaries of a wide range of approaches. For example, in the chapter on strategy we find an explanation of what strategy is, comments about being a safe sounding board, blind spots, biases and framing, scenario planning, listening to different voices, appreciative enquiry, prevailing beliefs and stories, stakeholder analysis and systems approach, strategy development, identifying strengths, awareness of biases, imperfect information, decision-making, commitment, strategy communication and goal setting, followed by a section with a vignette about coaching and mentoring SMEs and family businesses, and a list of 10 different strategy tools that coach mentors might use with clients.  Each of the chapters is equally rich.′ (Julie Hay)
