- David, S. (2016). Beyond goals: Effective strategies for coaching and mentoring. Routledge.
In this book, David goes to the depths of examining the role that goals play in coaching and mentoring. The main thesis of this book is to find if the simple assumptions that are made concerning the role of goal in the practice of mentoring and coaching play any role in the process of learning or in the formation of a relationship. David challenges these assumptions by saying that the process of coaching and mentoring should commence with a clear set of goals. Wrong goals during the start of a relationship will make the players pay attention to the wrong objectives according to an in-depth analysis by David. The way someone will manage a goal in both mentoring and coaching will be determined by the type of a goal that someone is chasing and the reason behind pursuing that goal. In his book, David has interacted with a group of experts have a vast understanding of mentoring and coaching and presented their perspectives in a simple and precise manner.
