Focusing on all types of organization - public, private, large, small and not-for-profit - Robert Garvey inspires and provokes readers by asking questions such as 'Are coaching and mentoring the same?' 'Are we obsessed with skills?' and 'What is performance?' He also delves into contemporary debates such as concerns about standards, competencies and codes of ethics, interspersed with views on power, control and politics. This book will prove an engaging, thought-provoking and, above all, entertaining read for undergraduate, postgraduate and MBA students looking for different ways of thinking about coaching and mentoring.
