9781903776353: The Mentoring Pocketbook (Management Pocketbooks)

The Mentoring Pocketbook - now in its second edition and significantly extended - shows how to design and manage a mentoring scheme, how to prepare to be a mentor, how to conduct mentoring sessions, how to maintain the relationship through the different stages and how to evaluate mentoring. Before looking at the actual mentoring process, the authors deal with the uses of mentoring within organisations (particularly in the context of managing change and mission/value statements) and explain how mentoring differs from coaching, training and appraisals. The process of mentoring is explained with the aid of a 3-stage model. This can be used to assess yourself as a mentor, as a map to guide you through the process, as a review tool and as a means to develop the mentee's ability to use the model independently. Subsequent chapters explore the mentor-mentee relationship and address key issues and questions. Although primarily aimed at the mentor, The Mentoring Pocketbook is also helpful to mentees.

About the Author:

This book was produced collaboratively by Bob Garvey of the Mentoring and Coaching Research Unit, Sheffield Hallam University, Geof Alred, Honary Fellow at Durham University and Richard Smith, Professor at Durham University.


This book states on the cover that it is a pocketful of proven tips, tools, and techniques for mentors and mentees to maximize the benefits of this powerful development process. Not only does it deliver its cover promise, but it does so in the most succinct fashion without missing any key details. This is an excellent book for experts or beginners as well as mentors and those seeking a mentor. Its formatting makes it easy and quick to read while at the same time providing readily useable ideas, activities, and concepts. The authors pay great attention to successful mentoring relationships, including the various roles, necessary qualities, and developmental stages, and they include an issues and questions section that covers not only concerns common to both mentors and partners, but also challenges faced by program coordinators. The authors place mentoring within the context of learning and show the reader how to use a simple process to make progress in any mentoring relationship. This book can be carried in a pocket and the authors have wisely included some blank pages for notes. --Top Books in Mentoring
