Abstract:

Power is no longer the ticket to upward mobility or job security, competence is! Leaders as mentors must replace advice on 'how to get ahead' with guidance on "how to get (and stay) smart." This book introduces a revolutionary new paradigm for creating a learning organization one person at a time. This highly practical book is a rapid-fire read and a provocative primer on how to help associates grow and adapt in today's tumultuous organizations. As mentoring has grown in importance in the last five years, so have the specifications for mentoring tools. Managers today want proficiency without it being a program. They seek helpful resources and techniques not hindering rules and policies.
