Coaching and mentoring as management approaches have spread rapidly across the Asia Pacific region. Basic concepts of supporting people in their learning, in their career journeys, and in the acquisition of wisdom are deeply rooted in all cultures, yet today, there is little agreement about what constitutes good practice.
Coaching and Mentoring in the Asia Pacific is the first book to put coaching and mentoring into an Asia Pacific context – exploring the challenges, benefits and differences in application, both in concept and practice. Opening with a foreword from Anthony Grant, this book provides commentaries and practical case studies from a wide variety of countries, sectors and perspectives. The authors show how organizations in the Asia Pacific Region can make effective use of this powerful developmental tool, in cost-effective, culturally relevant ways.
This book will be invaluable reading for students and practitioners based in, planning to work in, or curious about coaching and mentoring in the Asia Pacific.
