Written in the no-nonsense and engaging style of the other Leader's Guide books, this is the best tool on the market for managers wanting to coach their people to optimum performance.

'In this hands-on book, Mike and Fiona highlight the real difference between conventional management and effective leadership: management is a profession, while coaching is much wider; it encourages social interaction and a focus on human relationships at work. That's what new generations expect and respect.'

Laurent Choain, Chief People & Communication Officer, Mazars Group

'It's not always easy for managers to recognise what real coaching is, let alone its value. This book makes a compelling case for the Manager as Coach and contains real, usable examples of how to go about it.'

Ian Johnston, Chief Executive, Dubai Financial Services Authority
