In today’s global and collaborative workplace, learning is largely crowdsourced and talent development budgets are lean. This environment is ripe for one increasingly popular informal learning method—mentoring. As its name suggests, ATD’s Best On Mentoring provides the very best of ATD’s content on the topic of mentoring. This compilation includes TD magazine articles, TD at Work issues, and ATD Press book chapters in four sections.
Part I focuses on mentoring fundamentals, and includes key chapters and articles on how managers can bolster employee development across their organizations.
Part II is all about mentoring partnerships. Resources in this section outline mentoring program models, case studies, and advice from leaders in the profession.
Part III discusses best practices for successfully implementing a mentoring program. It contains proven techniques to develop motivated employees in today’s “do more with less” business environment.
Part IV examines the future of mentoring and its role in the 21st-century workplace. Chapters from the popular Modern Mentoring make the case for developing a culture of mentoring in which people choose when and from whom they want to learn.
