Creating a Coaching Culture (Coaching in Practice) by Peter Hawkins

This might be a very useful book not just for nurses but may be good for paramedics who are also introducing mentoring and coaching within their contexts.

I did particularly like the four domains of learning (figure 2:3, 2:4).
I also like the five levels of culture (figure 3:2). I feel many students would find this very useful.
I also thought figures 9:2 & 9:3 very effective.
It is very useful to see scenarios from outside the… Read more
