Reach New Heights as a Mentor
Broaden people’s perspectives. Sustain momentum for development. Drive significant career growth. It doesn’t take a workplace superhero to accomplish all of this. You can do it—when you become a masterful mentor.
While mentoring resources typically center on the mentee or the program, 10 Steps to Successful Mentoring is devoted explicitly to helping you excel in the role of mentor. In this book, Wendy Axelrod helps you stretch your mentoring abilities to yield substantial rewards for you and your mentee. Drawing on more than 20 years of work with mentors, she delves into proven approaches to use in your ongoing meetings, such as elevating the power of questions, leveraging experience for learning, and expanding growth using everyday psychology. Come away inspired to take on a fresh challenge.
Whether mentoring is a calling or a choice, you’re new to it or a seasoned veteran, or you’re in a formal program or on your own, 10 Steps to Successful Mentoring is the resource you’ll return to again and again. It’s filled with real-life examples and 40 tools to help you master the nuances that drive deliberate development. Woven throughout are Wendy’s seven guiding principles that distinguish the most successful mentors (hint: "Start where your mentee is, not where you think they should be").
Become the best possible mentor, and deliver memorable experiences to your mentees and create a lasting legacy for yourself.
