Overview

Mentoring differs from instruction, teaching, and coaching in that it emphasizes not talents and skills used in executing a project, but the qualities and values of life needed to sustain oneself in the creative endeavor. In Leader Mentoring, author Michael Shenkman makes the case for leader mentoring. "No mentors, no leaders," he says. Yet, this great, ancient, and necessary catalyst for learning has been neglected by our training and development industry.

For any executive who wants to succeed, coaching has proven its worth. But mentoring touches something else: how managers can shape their lives so that they can step into larger challenges and risks to accomplish something greater than they ever have before.

This book looks at the true significance of mentoring, as well as the tradition and spirit that motivates it. In addition, Shenkman's colleagues and clients share their own life-changing mentoring experiences. Today, at a time when great leaders need to be found and set to work, Leader Mentoring shows the way.
