High-Impact Mentoring: A Book Whose Time Has Come
We’ve never needed mentors more than we do now. The world is in a state of intense chaos, change, and uncertainty. Employees need the right skill set and mindset to navigate these unprecedented times, while companies need the right culture to develop and nurture these skills and attitudes. No one is born knowing how to work and lead in this environment. We need role models, teachers, and coaches—mentors—to show us the way.
That’s why Bert Thornton and Dr. Sherry Hartnett wrote High-Impact Mentoring. It’s meant to 1) teach readers how to be a great mentor and 2) help organizations operationalize the power of mentoring. Bert, former president and COO of Waffle House, offers “across the table” advice on one-on-one mentoring. Sherry, founding director of the University of West Florida’s Executive Mentor Program, lays out a framework to help companies put their own program in place.
Just a few of the insights readers will learn:
High-Impact Mentoring is packed with practical, easy-to-grasp tips and tactics. But it’s much more than just a how-to guide; it’s a fun, readable dose of wisdom and inspiration. Filled with real-world stories and case studies, this book is a must-read for anyone who wants to make a difference in the lives of others…and any organization seeking to engage employees, attract and retain talent, and become a better place to work.
