Publisher Comments:

"Margo told us early on that mentoring would be the linchpin of our AYES model and she was certainly correct. Our mentoring process has set the AYES initiative apart from all other automotive training programs. Thanks to her for all of her contributions and coaching us to emphasize the mentor role in our initiative."—Donald T. Gray, president and CEO, Automotive YES, General Motors"Margo has done it again! This new edition provides the blueprint, tools, and resources to create a successful facilitated mentoring process. This revised edition will be a great addition to your professional library."—Roger M. Addison, director, human performance technology, International Society for Performance Improvement"The phenomenon of the use of mentoring in today's society is definitely at a juncture where it needs to be developed as a comprehensive discipline. Ms. Murray's Facilitated Mentoring Model provides the critical link for private and public sector mentoring."—Martin A. Jacks, founding president and director, The Mentoring Center, Oakland, California"A must read for the HRD practitioner interested in building a realistic approach to facilitated mentoring."—Kathy Wentworth Drahosz, president, The Training Connection, Inc."For many individuals and organizations who work directly with people, the concept of mentoring, of developing potential, simply makes sense. Too often the problem is how to accomplish this. Margo Murray's book makes this process understandable and provides a very effective roadmap to successful mentoring relationships."—Danny E. Sledge, dean of students, Kalamazoo College, and president, International Mentoring AssociationPraise for the First Edition"Literally 'soup to nuts' roadmaps of the facilitated mentoring process."—Journal of Continuing Education"If you want to understand the design and administration of a mentoring program, this is an excellent reference."—HR Magazine"An excellent resource for managers, human resource specialists, or anyone who is interested in pursuing a mentoring relationship for career growth."—Performance & Instruction Quarterly

Synopsis:

The business world has changed dramatically since the first edition of Beyond the Myths and Magic of Mentoring was published in 1991. Once a fringe approach to skill development, facilitated mentoring has made its way into the mainstream as a successful, cost-effective method for critical skill and knowledge transfer. Countless organizations in business, education, and the nonprofit sector have discovered that having a facilitated mentoring process is a key strategy for filling today's need for a more highly skilled, diverse, and flexible workforce. What makes some of them more successful than others?Margo Murray's classic book Beyond the Myths and Magic of Mentoring has been thoroughly revised and updated to meet the demands of today's complex and competitive organizations. Filled with real-life examples illustrating what works and what doesn't, this invaluable resource provides both sample models and specific guidelines for designing, implementing, and evaluating a facilitated mentoring process within any type of organization. A wealth of helpful suggestions on how to be a mentor, find a mentor, and what to do to make the mentoring relationship work makes this book essential reading for anyone with an interest in mentoring. While built on a well-researched foundation, Beyond the Myths and Magic of Mentoring is an accessible resource.

  • A clear explanation of what mentoring is—and what it is not
  • Guidance for assessing needs and determining organizational readiness
  • Advice for structuring the mentor role
  • Suggestions for evaluating mentoring process effectiveness
