Mentoring relationships are rewarding for both mentors and those they are guiding.
By Robert Clinton & Paul Stanley
We are all interdependent on each other, which is why connecting with others plays such an indispensable role in healthy development. Having access to the wisdom, experience, vision, and direction of others can put you years ahead of where you’d be on your own.
The fruit of over 40 combined years of experience, and research in to the lives of more than 600 past and present leaders, Connecting will show you:
- How to find the right mentor, even when it seems none are available.
(By pointing to the seven diferent types of mentoring influences, the authors dispel the notion that there is only one "ideal mentor" for each of us, and they show how it's possible never to be without at least one active mentoring relationship)
- How the three dynamics of successful mentoring can guarantee rewarding relationships
- What a balanced range of mentoring relationships should look like, and how they can help you avoid the five most common forms of failure.
- Dozens of illustrations and ideas on how mentoring can work for you right now, at whatever stage of life you find yourself.
Mentoring relationships can be key to effective discipleship and evangelism. This book shows you how to do it effectively.
