Beyond Goals

The presence of goals in coaching and mentoring has gone largely unquestioned, yet evidence is growing that the standard prescription of SMART, challenging goals is not always appropriate – and even potentially dangerous – in a complex and rapidly changing world.

Beyond Goals advances standard goal-setting theory by bringing together cutting-edge perspectives from leaders n coaching and mentoring. From psychology to neuroscience, from chaos theory to social network theory, the contributors offer diverse and compelling insights into both the advantages and limitations of goal pursuit. The result is a more nuanced understanding of goals, with the possibility for practitioners to bring greater impact and sophistication to their client engagements. The implications of this reassessment are substantial for all those practising as coaches and mentors, or managing coaching or mentoring initiatives in organizations.
