The authoritative guide to coaching in organizations, Leadership Coaching For The Workplace, has been re-released in Kindle format. "We made it an ebook so it would be accessible to the upcoming generation of coaches," said co-author Timothy Bentley.
"This reduced the cost at the same time as it made the book instantly available worldwide. Members of the Kindle owners' lending library can even borrow it for free." Find it at http://amzn.com/B00HQ0H7IK.
