"Elizabeth Ghaffari's new book provides an exciting challenge for women―for those who mentor and those who are mentored. The latter are rarely considered. Ghaffari brings a new and interesting dimension to the study." (Frances Hesselbein, President and CEO, the Frances Hesselbein Leadership Institute (formerly the Peter Drucker Leadership Institute))
"Elizabeth Ghaffari encourages us to be aware of the people we admire and to ask ourselves why―what is it, specifically, that we admire about our role models? Their common sense? Their wisdom? Their integrity? How can we acquire the traits we admire? Touching on many diverse and interesting stories about both mentors and mentee, Tapping the Wisdom That Surrounds You should be a must-read for young women and men who are seeking guidance in their lives." (Gayle Wilson, Education Advocate and Former First Lady of California)
"Elizabeth Ghaffari expands our understanding of mentorship and in the process provides a cradle-to-grave spectrum of opportunities from which women can learn. In story after story, Ghaffari illustrates that wisdom need not be dispersed or consumed only in the classroom, the boardroom, or on the first tee. Guides and guideposts are already mapped into our daily lives." (Dian M. Gottlob, PhD, Assistant Dean, College of Liberal Arts & Sciences, University of Iowa)
"In her book, Elizabeth Ghaffari simplifies the process of finding mentors by illuminating events and people in everyday life. Great advice for those starting out on careers and in life." (Kay Koplovitz, Chair, Springboard Enterprises and Koplovitz & Co.)
