Summary
"Patterned after Strunk and White's classic The Elements of Style, this reference concisely summarizes the substantial existing research on the art and science of mentoring. W. Brad Johnson and Charles R. Ridley reduce this wealth of published material on the topic to the most important and pithy truths for supervisors in all fields. These explore what excellent mentors do, what makes an excellent mentor, how to set up a successful mentor-protege relationship, how to work through problems that develop between mentors and proteges, what it means to mentor with integrity, and how to end the relationship when it has run its course. Covering all aspects of the relationship and all the latest research, this concise yet complete guide to mentoring is sure to serve as the definitive guide for the field."--Jacket
