Managers as Mentors: Building Partnerships for Learning (Third Edition, Revised)

By Chip R Bell, Marshall Goldsmith
Leaders Creating Leaders
This latest edition of the classic Managers as Mentors is a rapid-fire read that guides leaders in helping associates grow in today's tumultuous organizations. Thoroughly revised throughout with twelve new chapters, this edition places increased emphasis on the mentor acting as a learning catalyst with the protege rather than simply handing down knowledge.
As with previous editions, a fictional case study of a mentor-protege relationship runs through the book. But now this is augmented with interviews with six top US CEOs. New chapters cover topics such as the role of mentoring in spurring innovation and mentoring a diverse and dispersed workforce accustomed to interacting digitally. Also new to this edition is the Mentor's Toolkit, six resources to help in developing the mentor-protege relationship. This hands-on guide teaches leaders to be the kind of confident coaches integral to learning organizations.
