Beyond Goals Book Description :

What is there in developmental relationships beyond setting and striving to achieve goals?

Beyond Goals advances standard goal-setting theory by bringing together cutting-edge perspectives from leaders in coaching and mentoring. From psychology to neuroscience, from chaos theory to social network theory, the contributors offer diverse and compelling insights into both the advantages and limitations of goal pursuit. The result is a more nuanced understanding of goals, ...

Beyond the Pale Book Description :

This project came about as a result of disillusionment with the ephemeral or redundant nature of much autobiographical writing, which can be alarmingly quick to date, and consequently instead of one timescale for composition there are four different timescales, viz. 1983,'85, '93, and '96, corresponding to the divisions of the book into four headed parts, each of which was written quite independently of the others both in timescale and even, to a limited degree, in style. Thus the result is certainly 'beyond the pale' of both retrospectively inclusive and introspectively exclusive autobiographical writings and remains, to this day, open-ended....
