Your Mentoring Handbook
on June 4, 2013
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.
