As HR professionals, leaders and managers, we frequently find ourselves in a coaching role. The first two books reviewed here offer rich insights and practical guidance on the important, challenging and highly responsible coaching relationship. Next we take a look at several recent books on performance management: strong frameworks for designing the right process, handy tools in terms of ready-made, customizable review forms and checklists of performance goals.
