"If you are new to mentoring, want to improve your mentoring skills or want to set up a new mentoring programme, this is the book for you. The skills that you will need as a mentor are fully explained and you are taken step by step through the stages of mentoring relationships. This book is packed with guidance, advice, examples, case studies and lots of practical ideas and suggestions that mentors can use. We look at the mentoring of different age groups and explore mentoring in different settings including in education, the workplace, the community and with people experiencing health and personal problems. For mentoring scheme organisers, Gordon explains how to set up and run a successful mentoring programme."
