Overview

The term "mentor" dates back to ancient Greece when Odysseus first entrusted his friend Mentor with the education of his son, but the practice has existed in virtually every culture in history. Today, though we may not recognize it as such, mentoring is practiced in our modern lives in everything from education, sports, business, and organized religion to parenting and friendships. With Mentoring: The Tao of Giving and Receiving Wisdom, authors Chungliang Al Huang and Jerry Lynch reinterpret and revitalize the classic concept, showing us how and why it can be an essential tool in all our relationships. Outlined in brief, browsable sections - each opening with a single principle shown in text and elegant Chinese and English calligraphy - this new approach to the traditional idea of mentoring incorporates the Taoist teachings of self-reflection, simplicity, openness to others, and sharing of ourselves. The result is Tao mentoring, a process of learning in which the reward is not only in reaching one's goals but also in the very process of guiding and growing together. Both mentor and protege mutually benefit from this dynamic interaction as ideas, support, and the joys of success are exchanged and shared.
