The Encouraging Mentor

Your Guide to 40 Conversations that Matter

One of the most important things you can do in life is encourage someone. Doing that as a caring mentor increases the impact. The Encouraging Mentor offers step-by-step instructions with proven conversation-starting tools for deep engagement. You can use these with no training. They work with individuals or groups. The tools will also help you, the reader, grow personally and professionally.

This book presents an alternative to formal mentoring programs that sometimes fail. This nonformal mentoring approach—grounded in adult learning theory—allows you to deploy tools at the right time to help people (or groups) grow when they are ready. These tools will equip you to help someone become more than they thought possible.
