The series will appeal to those studying to obtain certificates, diplomas, and masters in coaching and mentoring, alongside experienced practitioners who wish to round out their practice using selected essential reading as part of their continuous professional development.

Dr Riza Kadilar, EMCC President said ‘I'm delighted with our new book series “Masters in Coaching and Mentoring” published by Rutledge. The new series compliments EMCC's own book series “Reflections on coaching and mentoring”. I am certain that all the books in this new series, both current and future, will become essential reading for master practitioners and contribute to the further development of mentoring and coaching all over the globe.’

Professor David Clutterbuck one of the series editors and a founding member of EMCC said ‘The EMCC book series seeks to meet the needs of serious coaching and mentoring practitioners, who require an evidence base for their evolving practice. It is truly international in scope and, in line with EMCC values of inclusion, brings together academics, and practitioners for both rigour and practicality’ .

Coaching and Mentoring for Work-Life Balance Coaching and Mentoring for Work-Life Balance is essential reading for professional coaches and mentors who are helping their clients to develop personal resilience and will also be a valuable resource for students on postgraduate coaching and mentoring courses. The authors present some of the latest thinking on this topic, underpinned by their own research and model for work-life balance, making the book indispensable to all those engaged in leadership, coaching, mentoring, and supervision.

‘We are delighted to share the latest contribution to the EMCC coaching and mentoring series. Presenting a practical and evidence-based resource, our aim is to help coaches and mentors in supporting clients to achieve greater work-life balance.’ Dr Julie Haddock-Millar, co-author.

The Art of Listening in Coaching and Mentoring This book answers a number of fundamental questions about listening in coaching and mentoring. What difference does being heard make to the speaker? How does it have that effect? What are the necessary components of good listening? How do you evaluate your practice as a listener and how do you improve? The book is intended as a companion for anyone who commits to becoming a good listener. It shows how to develop expertise in the four modes of listening. It offers examples and principles to guide practice, questions for reflection, and a series of ‘workouts’ to help the listener develop their ability to listen. It encourages by showing how good listening is simple – you turn up, pay attention, and listen with all you have, and it challenges by identifying the work it takes to do that.

‘The EMCC series is designed to ensure that coaching and mentoring practice has a sound and broad foundation. I am delighted to contribute to that through delving deeply into the essential, but often unexamined, skill of listening.’ Stephen Burt, author.

Coaching Supervision: Advancing Practice, Changing Landscapes Coaching and mentoring supervision is a rapidly expanding field. This book is a curated collection of contemporary thinking; presenting cutting-edge contributions from international writers, leaders in the professional field, academics and practitioners who offer a range of accessible applied research, practice examples, case studies, guidelines and reflective prompts to readers. As in art galleries, some pieces require reflection – and return visits may be necessary. The work is edgy and new, and yet totally grounded in the coaching and mentoring supervisor experience, bringing pragmatic solutions to current complex challenges. The book brings together pioneering research and practice and as such will remain current for many years. This book will be popular with experienced professionals who want to stretch and deepen their practice, keep up-to-date with current studies, challenge and catalyse their own thinking, and embrace learning from real-world practitioner examples and applied research.

‘We are delighted to stretch the field of coaching supervision through our book in the EMCC Mastery Series, extending our collective and individual wisdom in myriad directions, responding to the uncertainty of our current times.’ Jo Birch and Peter Welch, co-editors.

Coaching and Mentoring in the Asia Pacific Coaching and mentoring as management approaches have spread rapidly across the Asia Pacific region. Basic concepts of supporting people in their learning, in their career journeys, and in the acquisition of wisdom are deeply rooted in all cultures, yet today, there is little agreement about what constitutes good practice. Coaching and Mentoring in the Asia Pacific is the first book to put coaching and mentoring into an Asia Pacific context – exploring the challenges, benefits and differences in application, both in concept and practice. Opening with a foreword from Anthony Grant, this book provides commentaries and practical case studies from a wide variety of countries, sectors and perspectives. The authors show how organisations in the Asia Pacific Region can make effective use of this powerful developmental tool, in cost-effective, culturally relevant ways. This book will be invaluable reading for students and practitioners based in, planning to work in, or curious about coaching and mentoring in the Asia Pacific.

‘This book is the first of its kind, in that it takes practical case studies that look at coaching and mentoring from our colleagues located across Asia and the Pacific. Understanding the different cultural aspects to these regions will help those looking to work with and within this geographical area. This book will allow organisations investing in coaching to make effective use of this powerful developmental tool, in cost-effective, culturally relevant ways.’ Dr Anna Blackman, co-editor.
