Kirsty has structured this book in a way that makes navigation through it easy. I particularly liked her approach that uses cartoons, graphics, and a very easy to read text. Also the mind map summaries and template documents are a very useful resource. I feel the approach is relevant to managers and leaders across cultural boundaries. I have recommended this book to members of my team throughout Asia and China.”

Leadership Coaching is also a vital source book for trainers who are looking for resources to use in their own leadership work with managers either individually in a coaching context or as a text for a management development programme.”
