I acquired this text with the intention of suggesting it to a group of undergraduate students undertaking Supervision training with health and counselling professionals working within a context of education. The intention was that it would offer the students information about coaching with members of this group that often happens as part of the supervision process.

As a third edition, the coaching and mentoring section was still in need of further refining. There is much more separation between coaching and mentoring and this text does not fully differentiate between the two.

An up to date book specifically generated for leading and managing people in education; this is particularly useful as books tend to be generic to business. Useful sub headings.
