What are the key skills needed to be a successful coach, mentor or supervisor?
How can personal development be effectively facilitated?
What are the ethical guidelines for practicing as a coach, mentor or organizational consultant?
In the last ten years, there has been an enormous growth in the fields of coaching, mentoring and consultancy. These professions, like psychotherapy and counseling before them, are going through a phase of professionalization, with the establishment of formal standards, European bodies and standard requirements for supervision.
This book provides a response to these growing demands with sections that examine:
Differences and similarities between coaching, mentoring and organizational consultancy
Personal and professional development that leads to sustainable change
Qualities, capabilities, skills and values necessary for effective coaching, mentoring and supervision
Guidelines for practice
Divided into three parts the book first discusses the practice of coaching, mentoring and consultancy. A second section goes on to look at development and supervision of these roles whilst a third section addresses the wider issues of training, skills and capacities required in these roles. Throughout, information is presented in an accessible and user-friendly way which, whether they have previous knowledge of these areas or not, should enable readers to fully understand the benefits of the methods discussed.
