If you want to help your employees grow - while holding on to them longer, you have to mentor. Enter the revised and expanded edition of, Managers as Mentors: Building Partnerships for Learning, by Chip Bell and Marshall Goldsmith - an easy to understand handbook for creating great relationships and talent.

All the information is here to create a self-directed learner, from planning, to rapport, discovery, and ensuring the transfer of learning. Mixed in with the 27 chapters are fitting case studies to help pull everything together. One of the things that I liked most of all was, The Mentor's Toolkit, at the end. A short series of assessments, FAQs, and stories to help you promote and support continuous improvement.

As Bell and Goldsmith say in the book, "Mentors practice their skills with a combination of never-ending compassion, crystal-clear communication, and a sincere joy in the role of being a helper along a journey toward mastering". And how do you get there? Read and use this book as a guideline and you'll be well on your way.

Format: Paperback
Some books have the why and some books have the how. This gem has both!
It starts with a mentoring self-evaluation; it provides the essential mind-set,
qualities and context that must be brought to the party. It provides a specific
tool-kit for the mentored and the menteed. If you lead, manage or parent others
go buy this book quickly and learn from the masters.

Being a mentor shouldn't ever be a drain, it should be mutually beneficial. Chip Bell and Marshall Goldsmith believe in the shared benefits of mentorships. They have collected their experiences in this practical and useful book. I've been mentoring for over thirty years and I learned many new thing from this book. Feed forward was a real winner. Feed forward is an ingenious tool for providing and receiving ideas in advance of actions. Don't miss this useful tool.

Format: Kindle Edition
A good manager makes you want to do a better job, a great manager makes you want to be a better person. This book will help you become the mentor you always wanted and honor the terrific ones you had.

I've been blessed to have six mentors, five of whom have passed away and in my mind they all continue keep guiding me to be the best person I can be and when I get down on myself for being less than perfect or less than superhuman, they firmly say to me in my head to stop. Just saying that and thinking that is causing me to feel my gratitude to them in my stomach and cheekbones.

Thank you Chip and Marshall

Format: Paperback
Ask any satisfied career person the key to their success and they will often say, "mentoring." Most managers don't know to where or how to get started with building partnerships for learning. Well, no more worries. The two gurus of coaching and leadership have joined together to give us an artful execution of a classic.

Chip Bell and Marshall Goldsmith have not only provided us with a brilliant step-by-step SAGE model, complete with PRACTICAL action but also with case studies from six leading CEO's who describe mentoring challenges and successes and provide tangible advice. As a new manager, I recall how I read (and reread) a previous edition of this book to guide me through mentoring challenges. Though I am in a different role now, I see multiple reasons for continuing the learning journey with this terrific book by my side. Buy this for yourself and everyone you work with!
