About the Author:

Erik de Haan is a Senior Consultant at Ashridge Consulting at Ashridge Management School. He was previously a consultant in the Netherlands and researcher at the University of Utrecht. He has written more than 150 articles and eleven books in different languages, among which are Fearless Consulting, Relational Coaching, Supervision in Action, and Pocketbook Team Coaching. The Dutch edition of his book Learning with Colleagues has been a bestseller in the Netherlands and he has also written a book on the importance of Shakespeare's King Lear for managers.

Review:

'I have never read such an elegantly literate exposition of the nuances of the consulting process. Dr. De Haan presents a robust model of the issues and choices that arise for the consultant, and brilliantly interweaves well-chosen passages from King Lear to exemplify the model. Not only is this a book to delight the philosophically inclined among us, but it also beautifully illustrates De Haan's down-to-earth approach to consulting. After forth years of consulting practice, I found insights into consultant-client relationships that had previously escaped me. De Haan's approach is highly practical; if we were to follow more closely, we and our clients would both profit thereby.'- Roger Harrison, Organisation Development Consultant and Writer, from the Foreword
