Written to challenge, stimulate, and inform, this book takes a critical look at the rapidly-growing field of coaching and mentoring.

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 proves to be an engaging, thought-provoking and, above all, entertaining read for undergraduate, graduate, and MBA students looking for different ways of thinking about coaching and mentoring.
