- how coaching can improve teaching and learning.

Written by experienced educators and coaches, this book provides insight for all those involved in school leadership.

Further reflection shows how coaching and learning are inextricably connected. Clear explanations of coaching models and tools enable readers to expand their own range as coaches.

The book brings together the what, how and why of coaching but also gives some practical advice and examples on how coaching works. [...] I think the book is value for money, it is readable and a useful book for someone who is new to coaching.
