In just 10 minutes a day, Coaching on the Go gives you the tools to be an effective leader.

As a busy leader you know that coaching is an important tool for you to bring out the best in people in a most human and natural way.

Split into two parts:

About the Author

Phil Renshaw started his career in international banking and treasury, going on to become a Finance

Director in the IT sector. Then he tuned into the fact that people, and hence people skills, generate the numbers. And with that insight, he launched a new career. He is now a management and executive coach, leadership development facilitator and an expert in the value of international assignments.

Jenny Robinson has worked all over the world; been kidnapped (yes, but it wasn’t that serious); driven through the Borneo jungle as her commute to work; and learnt to be effective in the normal office environments of Asia, Europe, America and Africa. She works on leadership development and as a mindfulness coach to senior executives.
