They are written using accelerated learning principles to maximise memory retention and recall. It’s fun to learn with Pocketbooks and new skills are quickly transferred back to the workplace.

  • Speed of learning and transfer of knowledge lie at the heart of our pocketbooks
  • They need to get to the essential facts, quickly, and they need to be able to apply their learning immediately.
  • Written by skilled communicators, management and L&D professionals who know how to make their messages simple, accessible and of real practical value.
  • You’ve no doubt gone through a lengthy piece of text with a highlighter pen, picking out key words and phrases. It’s these highlights that make up a pocketbook – bite-size chunks of information, supported by plenty of visual aids and other triggers to accelerate understanding and maximise memory retention and recall.
Description

Overview

The Mentoring Pocketbook, now in its third edition, shows how to prepare to be a mentor, how to conduct mentoring sessions, how to maintain the relationship through the different stages and how to evaluate mentoring.

Before looking at the actual mentoring process, the authors deal with the uses of mentoring within organisations (particularly in the context of managing change and mission/value statements) and explain how mentoring differs from coaching, training and appraisals. The process of mentoring is explained with the aid of a 3-stage model.

This can be used to assess yourself as a mentor, as a map to guide you through the process, as a review tool and as a means to develop the mentee's ability to use the model independently.

Subsequent chapters explore the mentor/mentee relationship and address key issues and questions. Although primarily aimed at the mentor, The Mentoring Pocketbook is also helpful to mentees.

For mentors and mentees, a pocketful of tips and techniques to maximise the benefits of this highly effective human resource development process
