A universal guide to developing the talents of others, The Art of Mentoring is a universal guide to developing the talents of others. It teaches how to create partnerships of trust and learning in today's challenging organizations. Brand new in the second edition are new chapters on "the art of being mentored" as well as a discussion of the four key purposes of mentoring.

This is the captivating story of an internal consultant sent to a small subsidiary. Her challenge: rekindle motivation in the five marketers or recommend their termination. Her decision: create a culture in which each person has the opportunity and help to succeed. Mentors learn to build a trusting relation; to teach a new employee the "unspoken rules"; to help the mentee transform a mundane job into a satisfying role; to prevent an employee from derailing his career with straight talk; to coach on interpersonal skills; and much more.

It illustrates the mentoring process, "lead, follow AND get out of the way," answers the question of who should mentor and who shouldn't, and includes in this new edition ten principles that every mentor should follow and ten principles that every "mentee" should learn.

From the Publisher:

The first edition of The Art of Mentoring was meant for managers, human resources professionals, and training consultants whose organizations were involved in mentoring. Before long, it found a large audience among personal coaches and people who wanted to use its practical insights and ideas to improve their lives at work and at home.

This second edition contains two totally new chapters on "being mentored." The reader learns a complete process for establishing a mentoring relationship, the stages of a mentoring relationship, how to get the most from that relationship and pitfalls to avoid.

In addition, Dr. Peddy explains the four purposes of mentoring: wisdom, judgment, resilience and independence. We believe readers will find this book an indispensable guide to enhancing the mentoring relationship.

From the Author:

Some people have asked me why I write novels instead of the standard "how-to" books. In his powerful book How to Argue and Win Every Time attorney Gerry Spence explains, "Storytelling has been the principle means by which we have taught one another since the beginning of time." What is mentoring but one person sharing the wisdom gained from experience with a willing and eager student? One advantage I find in writing a novel is that it allows my characters to raise all the typical objections to the advice they are given and the narrator to respond in a helpful way. Like my first book, Secrets of the Jungle, Art is meant to be practical and immediately useful.

People learn in different ways. Some people enjoy stories; others prefer their information in a more structured form. Those who prefer structure should focus on "Notes to the Mentoring File," key summaries at the end of most chapters. These may be accessed easily through the "Contents." Whatever your choice, I know you will gain practical insights and ideas from reading this book. If you would like to contact me directly, my e-mail is success@bullionbooks.com. I'd love to hear from you. Keep shining. Shirley
