Everyone Needs a Mentor
Mentoring is the most cost-efficient and sustainable method of fostering and developing talent within your organisation. Mentoring can be used to stretch talented individuals, power diversity programmes and ensure that knowledge and experience is successfully handed down. Everyone Needs a Mentor explains what mentoring is, what various models there are and how these differ from coaching. It shows you how to make a business case for mentoring and then how to set up, run and maintain your own programme. The fifth edition has been revised and updated to include developments in the field within the last 10 years. Issues such as multinational mentoring, maternity mentoring and the impact of social media on mentoring, are now covered and are aided by a wealth of international case studies.

Beyond Goals
What is there in developmental relationships beyond setting and striving to achieve goals? The presence of goals in coaching and mentoring programs has gone largely unquestioned, yet evidence is growing that the standard prescription of SMART, challenging goals is not always appropriate – and even potentially dangerous – in the context of a complex and rapidly changing world. Beyond Goals advances standard goal-setting theory by bringing together cutting-edge perspectives from leaders in coaching and mentoring. From psychology to neuroscience, from chaos theory to social network theory, the result is a more nuanced understanding of goals, with the possibility for practitioners to bring greater impact and sophistication to their client engagements.

The Talent Wave
If succession planning works, how do the wrong people so often get to the top? Succession planning was once the key to identifying potential leaders to fill important positions. However, in today’s rapidly evolving business world traditional succession planning is no longer a viable strategy with research showing that 70% of succession plans fail within two years, simply from lack of management support.
In a climate of growing skills shortages and lack of confidence in leadership potential, David Clutterbuck offers a new a process of dialogue between an organization and its employees. The Talent Wave presents a dynamic, flexible approach to succession planning and talent management.

Powerful Questions for Coaches and Mentors
Questions that stimulate deep thinking are the lifeblood of coaching and mentoring. This invaluable e-book contains an overview of how coaches and mentors can develop their own portfolios of powerful questions and guidelines on when and how to use them. (Sometimes the best questions are the ones that aren’t even spoken!) For some 70 common situations and issues in coaching and mentoring, it provides both practical guidance on how to approach the issue, along with a portfolio of relevant powerful questions for each.

Coaching the Team at Work
Much has been written about coaching individuals, yet there has been little investigation of coaching teams at work. Even in organisations that have made strides towards becoming coaching cultures, the focus has been on the individual, not the team. This failure is now a serious weakness in the abilities of managers at all levels. In this book, David Clutterbuck bridges the gap between what is known about team learning and coaching and the practical experience of managers and team coaches. He answers such questions as how team coaching differs from individual coaching, what skills underpin effective team coaching, and how team coaching can be made a sustainable, automatic process.
