Who has been the most influential person in your life? Was it a school teacher? An uncle? A parent? A grandmother? A minister? An employer? A coach?

Whoever it was, your reason for choosing this person probably had more to do with who they 'were' and how they 'lived', than how they looked or what they owned.

What you experienced was the result of this

Overview

Who has been the most influential person in your life? Was it a school teacher? An uncle? A parent? A grandmother? A minister? An employer? A coach?

Whoever it was, your reason for choosing this person probably had more to do with who they 'were' and how they 'lived', than how they looked or what they owned.

What you experienced was the result of this significant person's ability to model inspiring qualities and communicate those qualities to you. How did they do it? What were the ingredients that enabled them to teach so effectively?

Down through the centuries, students have learned through careful observation from those more experienced. Apprentices have learned from craftsmen who took them by the hand. Amateurs emulated professionals. Disciples studied masters.

As one who has been profoundly influenced by skilled leaders and who has, in turn, motivated many others, Ted Engstrom could be aptly described as a mentor's mentor.

In this book, Ted Engstrom will introduce to you the idea of mentoring. As a leader, you'll learn that mentoring represents the difference between talking and doing as a student, you'll learn from the master's performance as well as his prose.
