Personal Coaching: Releasing Potential at Work by Kaye Thorne
Personal coaching is about developing one-to-one special relationships. Working closely with individuals as they make choices about life and work, personal coaches help people to explore the boundaries of their learning by offering advice that can be both supportive and testing. When it is done well the connectivity is seamless; a coach intuitively knows how and when to suggest meetings and actions that will uplift or challenge. In this book, Kaye Thorne applies her accessible style and practical approach to this latest development technique. Developed from skills used by coaches to support the development of senior managers and executives - where one-to-one coaching is often the norm - the author shows how the same techniques can transform the effectiveness of staff development at all levels within an organization. An ideal way to support the current need for individual and tailored self-development, personal coaching will help organizations to achieve their developmental foals and help staff in pursuit of lifelong learning and personal development. Packed with practical advice and case studies, and providing a structured route to successful implementation in organizations of all sizes, this boo provides the essential handbook to support individual learners and to unlock organizational potential.
