Only Dr. Gray's eBook is based on over 30 years of experience in the field of mentoring, starting in 1978 when he first began to formalize all aspects of carefully planned and structured Mentoring Programs and do research on these essential Program components. Such as how to develop formalized mentoring relationships that work so well they produce intended mutual benefits for the protege, the mentor and their organization.
If you are a mentor, you will learn how to improve your effectiveness – by creating a better mentor-protege relationship, by interacting with proteges in new ways to equip and empower them, by helping proteges achieve desired goals. What you learn will save you valuable time (lack of time seems to be everyone’s main problem these days).
If you are a protege, you will learn how to manage the mentoring process – by requesting the exact mentor assistance you need, by knowing which mentoring variations will most help you (e.g., Peer Mentoring or Top-down Mentoring), by converting talk into actions that produce results. You will also learn how to provide effective and efficient mentoring for others.
If you are the coordinator or champion of a mentoring program, you will learn what I’ve learned about improving formalized mentor-protege relationships from developing over 150 very different formalized mentoring programs (none was the same – even within the same organization). You will learn how this produced intended benefits for proteges, mentors and the sponsoring organization. This will enable you to enhance mentoring relationships and outcomes within your program, and use mentoring to enhance other efforts like Training and Talent Management.
