This gem of a resource will aid the reader in understanding how to apply the mentoring microskills presented throughout. This is a must read for anyone who aspires to excellence as a leader and mentor." -Mary H. Guindon, School of Professional Studies in Business and Education, Johns Hopkins University"Johnson and Ridley carefully explain the skills, attitudes and values that make for effective mentoring. In this useful guide, they point out what helps and what could hurt these developmental relationships. A must read for mentors and protégés alike. I recommend it highly" -Winston E. Gooden, Ph.D., Dean, Fuller Graduate School of Psychology"Johnson and Ridley have distilled the essence of how to be a successful mentor in a well written succinct compendium they accurately describe as the "nuts and bolts" of effectively advancing the careers of junior colleagues in a caring, yet rigorous manner. The advice contained here holds significant value across work sites and professions, and can benefit both potential mentors and those wishing to find a mentor. I recommend this book to anyone hoping to guide the next generation in their field or hoping to find such a guide." -Gerald P. Koocher, Professor and Dean, School for Health Studies, Simmons College"The Elements of Mentoring is destined to become a classic due to its concise approach and timeless value in helping to create win-win situations for individuals committed to helping others achieve more. ...This excellent book has the potential to bring out your best: read it!" -Leadership & Organization Development Journal
