Patterned after Strunk and White's classic The Elements of Style, this new edition concisely summarizes the substantial existing research on the art and science of mentoring. The Elements of Mentoring reduces this wealth of published material on the topic to the sixty-five most important and pithy truths for supervisors in all fields. These explore what excellent mentors do, what makes an excellent mentor, how to set up a successful mentor-protégé relationship, how to work through problems that develop between mentor and protégé, what it means to mentor with integrity, and how to end the relationship when it has run its course. Succinct and comprehensive, this is a must-have for any mentor or mentor-to-be.

Johnson & Ridley step through the art of mentoring by outlining what you should be doing as a mentor, providing many examples from which to learn, and touching on many different aspects of the mentoring process. For anyone who has not mentored, this is a great starting point. It highlights aspects of what the mentor should be doing, and what mentees seek from the relationship.
