Mentoring 101

Mentoring 101

Ask the best leaders in any organization how they learned to be successful, and you often hear the same answer: they had a good mentor. That’s why in this essential and easy-to-read reference book, international leadership expert John C. Maxwell gives readers the bottom line on mentoring--what it is, why they should do it, and how they can do it most effectively. In Mentoring 101, he guides readers in the art of mentoring by explaining how to choose the right person to mentor, how to create the right environment for leaders to thrive and grow, how to help people become better, and how to overcome the most intimidating hurdle of all: getting started. What if you spent your entire life achieving but never shared your wisdom with anyone else? Mentoring is the key to creating a lasting legacy, and Mentoring 101 is your personalized key to seeing that journey through.

Mentoring and Diversity

Tips for Students and Professionals for Developing and Maintaining a Diverse Scientific Community

Mentoring and Diversity

Mentoring has always been an important factor in life and particularly in academia. In fact, making choices about educational pursuits and subsequent careers without input from mentors can prove disastrous. Fortunately, many individuals have “na- ral” mentors and for them these choices are greatly facilitated. Others are not pri- leged with natural mentors and as such often struggle with making these tough choices. Many times these individuals are from under served and disadvantaged backgrounds, where mentors are too few and far between. For them, deciding on which career path to take can be based not only on insufficient information but oft times on inaccurate information. Although the tips in this monograph are designed for helping all individuals who are interested in pursuing the study of science and science careers, a special mentoring focus is on those students who have not expe- enced the advantages of the privileged class. Additionally, tips are included for those who are interested in effectively mentoring these individuals. How and why a person gets to that point of wanting to mentor is not as important as the fact that they have made that commitment and this monograph will help them do exactly that. When I received my PhD in Reproductive Endocrinology from the University of Wisconsin, I was ready and anxious to discover all kinds of new and exciting aspects about this field of science.
