In this book, a number of coaching and change models are explored with the goal of integrating them into a framework that can be applied to the individual, team or organization. Bennett and Bush explain the theories behind both coaching and change, and include practical sections on developing coaching skills. A companion website supports this book as a learning tool, featuring a curriculum, instructor guides, powerpoint presentations and more.
