As a direct beneficiary of the positive impacts of mentoring, Adrienne M. Somerville knows what professionals are looking for in a Mentor and how Mentors can deliver. Most professionals understand the value of finding a Mentor but are held back from getting started. Why? Selecting a Mentor and forming a successful mentoring relationship requires honesty, effort, and self-reflection.
The literary arena is full of books addressing professional topics. Many of these publications treat the subject in such depth, they inadvertently eliminate intended audiences with the sheer volume of their texts. Ms. Adrienne Somerville upended this trend by authoring " Mastering Mentoring To Your Vantage Point" the authoritative 'grab and go' for professionals desiring a thorough, straight-forward coverage of professional mentoring. It's intended to be kept in a briefcase or purse for readers to delve into a chapter or two while commuting, traveling, or taking lunch breaks.
This book delivers practical guidance and solutions to the questions:
"What should I look for in a Mentor?"
"What does a Mentor expect from me? What can I realistically expect from them?"
"What happens in the mentoring sessions?"
"When do you 'outgrow' mentors?"
Participative by design, this book progressively builds from the general to the individual by delivering the basics of professional mentoring: its history, definition, and the common forms of mentoring found in today's business arena. "Mastering Mentoring To Your Vantage Point" is for the professional searching for the real-world process of identifying, requesting, meeting, and growing with a mentor.
