For employees, managing politics is a core skill. For coaches and mentors, there is the constant dilemma of how to help a client thrive in a political environment while remaining authentic. Coaching, Mentoring and Organisational Politics draws on the experiences of coaches, mentors, leaders and managers from around the world.
As all organisations are political environments, politics are likely to affect every coach at some point in their professional career. The authors expertly navigate this complex topic, going beyond collating existing concepts and undertaking new, first-hand research into what issues are considered “political” and the challenges they pose for leaders.
