SAGE Handbook of Mentoring

The SAGE Handbook of Mentoring

Our Director Paula King is proud to have contributed to the recent SAGE Handbook of Mentoring.


The SAGE Handbook of Mentoring provides a scholarly, comprehensive and critical overview of mentoring theory, research and practice across the world. Internationally renowned authors map out the key historical and contemporary research, before considering modern case study examples and future directions for the field. The chapters are organised into four areas:

The Landscape of Mentoring

The Practice of Mentoring

The Context of Mentoring

Case Studies of Mentoring Around the Globe

This Handbook is a resource for mentoring academics, students and practitioners across a range of disciplines including business and management, education, health, psychology, counselling, and social work.

‘Thinking, Fast and Slow’

This book by Nobel Prize winner, Daniel Kahneman, offers a terrific addition to the coach’s toolkit and is packed full with fascinating insights that will help you in your coaching engagements. It was first published in 2011, so many of you might already be familiar with it. The intention of this review is to analyse its potential worth as a coaching tool for practicing coaches.

The premise of the book is that we have two systems that act as agents within our minds, with their individual personalities, abilities and limitations.
