This management book offers managers, consultants and human resource (HR) professionals a practical guide to coaching or mentoring people using a predominantly non-directive approach. It explores how a coach or mentor can help others to think through their situation and find their own way forward, one which reflects the full reality and constraints of their situation. It considers the skills which underpin successful coaching and mentoring - listening attentively, asking questions that help the other to think, playing back to communicate or check understanding, managing and focusing the conversation, and leaving space for the client to find their own solutions. It also explores how to set up an internal mentoring scheme and how to commission external coaches.

Facilitators' notes and comprehensive guidance on how to deliver emotional coaching, structure and rationale are all provided, giving the adults who support these challenging young people the skills and confidence to engage them in the programme. The strategies are all designed to be brief and solution focused.
