So, being a mentor is a big responsibility. But with The Mentoring Manual, getting it right is easy.



Based on methods developed - and proven - in business, this highly practical book will show you how mentoring works, take you step-by-step through everything you need to know and do, and show you how both parties can get the best from the relationship.
