Book of the Month
Understanding how diversity impacts upon coaching is a crucial element to coaching effectively in today’s diverse society.
Diversity in Coaching explores the impact and implication of difference in coaching and provides practical information to help coaches respond effectively to issues of gender, generational, cultural, national and racial difference. Also covered are coaching gay, lesbian and bisexual clients, people with disabilities and working with mental health issues.
The contributors are an international team of 21 coaching professionals from 10 countries, including Mary Wayne Bush, Director of Research at the Foundation for Coaching, and Eddie Erlandson and Kate Ludeman of Work Ethic Corporation. Each chapter is written by a coach who specializes in coaching in specific countries or to specific groups.
They provide guidance on understanding diversity and how coaches can adapt their coaching styles and techniques to meet individual needs, local demands and cultural preferences.
