"The greatest gift one can give, other than love, is to help another learn! The Mentor's Guide has made that gift-giving compelling, comfortable, and competent. Every leader who cares about nurturing talent and facilitating excellence will find this book a joy to read and a jewel to share." --Chip R. Bell, author of Managers as Mentors "Life is an adventure and The Mentor's Guide generates excitement and energy for the journey. Full of pragmatic, comprehensive ideas for those whose passion is developing leaders, it is guaranteed to be all you will need to cultivate a fruitful and fun mentoring journey. The adventure begins and ends within these pages!" --Carrole A. Wolin, president, National Institute for Leadership Development "Zachary has written a comprehensive and accessible review of the complex and sometimes contradictory process of mentoring. She conceptualizes mentoring as a relationship of adult learning and complements this analysis with numerous illustrations, exercises, and suggestions for good practice.;Written in a conversational yet critical way, and full of recognizable vignettes, The Mentor's Guide is a wonderfully helpful compendium of ideas and resources that can be read profitably by novice and experienced mentors alike." --Stephen Brookfield, distinguished professor, University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis "Zachary shares stories, strategies, tips, and tools that demystify the most elemental form of informal learning and provides resources for taking the mentoring relationship to a deeper level of fulfillment." --Victoria J. Marsick, Teachers College, Columbia University "This guide goes beyond simply establishing a framework for a successful mentoring experience and providing some helpful 'how tos.' It is a compendium of virtually everything we know on making a mentoring relationship or program successful." --F. Richard Lennon, vice president and chief information officer, Nordstrom, Inc. Thoughtful and rich with advice, The Mentor's Guide explores the critical process of mentoring and presents practical tools for facilitating the experience from beginning to end.

Readers will learn how to: Assess their readiness to become a mentor Establish the relationship Set appropriate goals Monitor progress and achievement Avoid common pitfalls Bring the relationship to a natural conclusion
