  • These are some of the tools and techniques I’ve found really useful over the years in my coaching and personal/organisational development practice.This booklet is a result of both my private practice and some workshops I have delivered for various organisations on coaching and/or change management. As a result, it is more of a practitioner’s handbook rather than a theoretical textbook.
