Reviews - What do customers think about Mentoring 101?
General real principles for any decent boss or manager Jan 9, 2010
Had I written this book, I don't know that I would have called it "mentoring 101". Perhaps instead, I would have called it "being a relational boss" or "bringing the best out of people at work".
Most of the book is focused on the type of mentoring that is focused on results from the perspective of the average American company life (either for profit or non-profit, as Maxwell provides examples of both).
While I may have renamed the book, that doesn't mean that it's bad. Maxwell brings out the basics of human interaction and goal achievement. He debunks several myths about management that we seem to inherently believe despite evidence to the contrary (i.e. "what most people need is isolation and time to do what they do," opposed to the truth of "most people need community and accountability").
Maxwell also uses a wealth of interesting stories and illustrations - probably because his occupation outside of being an author is being a pastor.
In my busy schedule it took me a couple of days to read this, so you could probably sit down and read the whole thing at once - and perhaps should do so every time that you hire someone or gain someone who you could be seen as a supervisor to.
I'm someone who struggles with the basics of "being a boss" to people when they seem like they don't perform up to my standards. This book gave me some helpful insights as to how I can change in order to cut down the frustration in those relationships. Hope it does similar things for you.
Scratches the surface of a deep topic Oct 18, 2009
I don't blame Maxwell for marketing these gift-sized books, but there is a danger in them: that someone who uses them may consider themselves well-versed in the subject matter. For someone who wants to study mentoring, it is an introduction, but only that, and as such may be a waste of time and money.
Somewhat trivial Sep 25, 2009
I bought this book for my kindle to get a quick introduction to mentoring before starting a mentoring relationship. What I found is that the book does not really provide any deep insight into mentoring, mentoring techniques or any other practical guidelines but instead is mostly focused on general ideas and (somewhat trivial) general statements. While this might perhaps be sufficient to motivate somebody to develop a mentoring relationship, it is pretty much useless as a guide. This book reminds me of many other of the 'self improvement' category that try to give the reader a warm fuzzy feeling but don't provide anything of real use.
