Description: There is a gap in the literature for a coaching resource focused on the social sector. Based on the proven Inquiry Based Coachingâ„¢ approach, this book provides nonprofit managers with a practical guide to the understanding of why and how to coach, how to initiate coaching in specific situations, how to make coaching really work, and how to refine coaching for long-term success. The book can be used by the coaching novice as a thorough topical overview or by those more experienced with coaching as a quick reference or refresher.
