There are four key stages to coaching, namely assessing current performance levels, setting outcomes for learning, agreeing tactics/initiating action, and giving feedback. The author explains each stage and then moves on to summarise the various skills required. Next, the opportunities for coaching and the potential pitfalls are highlighted. A checklist and a case study end the Pocketbook on a practical note.

Author Biography - Ian Fleming
Ian Fleming works as a freelance management trainer. His approach is to work in-company alongside individuals and teams, coaching them to tackle real issues and situations. Allan J. Taylor's experience lies in development management, mainly in the brewing industry. His interest in coaching resulted from realising that most of what he did as a trainer didn't work. Practical experience has led the authors to believe that, done well, coaching can raise performance levels beyond the accepted norm.
