There are two things that I feel incredibly passionate about – coaching and culture.

This is why I was thrilled to have an opportunity to co-author this book with the living legends of coaching – David Clutterbuck and David Megginson.

Look no further. Building and Sustaining a Coaching Culture is the perfect guide for HR professionals interested in creating an environment that supports learning and growth.

A wide variety of international case studies and engaging tools such as chapter overviews, templates, and reflective questions will take you clearly through the development and implementation of successful and integrated training culture. Whether you are an HR Manager looking to maximize the positive impact of coaching in your organization, a business leader wanting to facilitate growth, or a consultant or coach seeking to place your work in the relevant organizational context, you will be shown how to implement an effective coaching and mentoring strategy that meets your needs.
