Mentoring and coaching: Tools and techniques for implementation. Meyer, M., & Fourie, L. (2004). Randburg: Knowres Publishing.

This book is aimed at providing practical guidelines for people involved in mentoring and coaching. Given the need for skills development, employee involvement and change management in South Africa, mentoring and coaching offer a method of transforming the way in which organisations train their employees, manage performance and accelerate employee career development. Further, it can be used to transfer knowledge from people with the most experience to those with less knowledge. As a result it can be a useful tool in achieving employment equity. Written by South African authors, the book is tailored to organisations in this environment where issues such as diversity place additional challenges for mentoring and coaching processes. The book is easy to read and includes a number of issues to consider as well as check lists in each of its ten chapters.
