Because You Believed in Me: Mentors and Proteges Who Shapeed

Overview

Because You Believed in Me uses stories of real people-such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Claude Monet and Eugene Boudin, Ulysses S. Grant and Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr. and Benjamin Elijah Mays-to capture the elusive qualities and proven benefits of mentoring relationships.

Overview

Because You Believed in Me uses stories of real people-such as Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Claude Monet and Eugene Boudin, Ulysses S. Grant and Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King Jr. and Benjamin Elijah Mays-to capture the elusive qualities and proven benefits of mentoring relationships. The value of mentoring, tested by time, becomes apparent in their stories. What if Eugene Boudin hadn't encouraged Claude Monet to paint the outdoors? Would someone else have inspired another person with similar talent to abandon studio painting and venture into the beauty of landscapes? Mentors expand boundaries and open worlds of possibilities. Even brilliant people need heroes. The emulation of another can be a catalyst for self-discovery. A mentor's example, along with questions and shared experiences, helps proteges clarify their paths, crystallize their values, and experience the freedom to explore unimagined vistas.Designed to inspire and uplift, Because You Believed in Me highlights the spirit of mutual generosity in the mentor-protege relationship. This wonderful collection is an invitation to reach out, renew, and remember the powerful influences of unique individuals.

What People Are Saying

Anne Sweeney
Because You Believed in Me captures the essence of mentorship - teaching ... Marcia A. McMullen and Patricia M. Miller illustrate the beauty and value of mentorship through the lives of an intriguing collection of people. ( Anne Sweeney President, Disney Channel Worldwide President, ABC Cable Networks Group)
Eleanor Clift
Without George Wythe, would there have been a Thomas Jefferson? Wythe did more than teach Jefferson law. He shaped his political philosophy and character. Greatness is a shared achievement, yet those who inspire others often remain in the shadows. Thanks to the authors for bringing to light these remarkable relationships and their impact on American society. (Eleanor Clift, Contributing editor, Newsweek )
Jay A. Winsten
...an uplifting and beautifully written exploration of the influence of mentoring on individual lives and on the history of humankind. (Jay Winsten, Ph.D. Director, Harvard University Mentoring Project Associate Dean, Harvard School of Public Health)
Lil Buck Sinegal
Valuable Lessons Throughout - For those of us who yearn to achieve and for those among us who are talented enough to teach. A true mentor never resents that the student surpasses the master, but rejoices in the accomplishments of the individuals they inspire. (James Sinegal President and CEO, Costco Wholesale )
Linda McGraw, Linda
Because You Believed in Me beautifully illuminates one of the most rewarding aspects of human relating, that of encouraging the growth of another. These inspiring vignettes bring to our attention a too infrequently acknowledged yet critically important dynamic underlying relationships. ( Linda McGraw, Ph.D. Director, Organization for Psychological Health)
Pat Mitchell
This book shows clearly that mentoring is the single most important way we can contribute or give back to our companies, our communities, our world. Each of these people did what all of us must do: with each step up the ladder of success, to drop down the ladder for those who come behind. (Pat Mitchell President and CEO, Public Broadcasting Service (PBS)
