Grace McCarthy includes an introduction to coaching and mentoring theory, then goes on to look at coaching and mentoring skills, and how they may be applied in relation to individual change, coaching and mentoring for leaders and by leaders, coaching and mentoring for strategy, innovation and organisational change, as well as coaching and mentoring in cross-cultural and virtual contexts. Coaching and Mentoring for Business also explores ethical issues in coaching and mentoring before concluding with the evaluation of success in coaching and mentoring and a discussion of emerging issues.
