Finally, a book on mentoring that applies the theory, not just discusses it,
This review is from: Creating a Mentoring Culture: The Organization's Guide (Paperback)
As a first year graduate student I am beginning to pursue my Masters in Communication, and until found Creating a Mentoring Culture, I was not enjoying my graduate experience. For the past year I have been working in the communication field of broadcasting, but all of my graduate classes are geared towards students eventually going into a teaching profession within a university and involve lots of theory, discussion, hypothesis and questioning but never give me any information that I can directly apply to my future career in a communication industry outside of teaching. I'm interested in how to apply it to my real life office. Creating a Mentoring Culture was a light in the dark room of grad school theory. It gives tangible examples that I can follow and put into practice. Lois Zachary has developed exercises, rules and activities that have been tested and will actually work in a real life setting. Creating a Mentoring Culture gave me something that I will be able to use in a real world, business office setting!
