What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"Hilarie Owen has produced a well researched and highly practical guide to one of the most pressing topics of the day. Both large corporations and ambitious SME companies will find this guide an invaluable tool to accessing the cost effective solution mentoring gives to the issue of identifying and unlocking the potential talent that exists within their organisations in the face of increasingly tight internal resources". — Tony Stubbs, Regional Director, Executives Online 

"Owen...outlines the steps to implementing a mentoring program at an organization, for those seeking mentors, who want to be one, or who are interested in setting up a program to create increased progress in an organization. She explains its differences from coaching, planning and structure aspects, understanding how adults learn, identifying mentors and mentees, its role in diversity and culture, evaluation, the element of sharing wisdom, and mentoring for small and medium enterprises and for leadership." — Book News, Inc.

"I commend this book for its pragmatic approach to many of the core issues and applications of mentoring - and for its store of wisdom." — Dr. David Clutterbuck
