The Everything Coaching and Mentoring Book: How to increase productivity, foster talent, and encourage success Reviews
I bought this book soon after I incorporated my business. I have been asked by several people to mentor or coach them and honestly I was not sure if this was something I knew how to do or if I even wanted to do it. This book gives a detail definition of mentoring and coaching and give you the difference between the two, even though it is a fine line. Each chapter is planned out and explained to the greatest details and I am glad I bought it. I have used some of the information provided to help me with my first mentor client. I would definitely recommend it to anyone considering coaching or mentoring. Thank you.
If you are looking for a full treatment of mentoring, this is not the book to provide it. It has a nice title, but it is around 90% about coaching and only covers 10% about mentoring. (Yes, they do define the difference.) I did not read the sections on coaching so I cannot comment on the quality of that part of the book.
Nigro has provided an important resource for developing professionals from upper level executives to line supervisors. Written in an easy to grasp (and therefore implementable) style, I find that the professionals I develop appreciate his direct and common sense approach for bringing out the best in a workforce.
I liked the book, and came away with a top 15 for it. It was helpful.
According to the author, coaching and mentoring are not the same; in fact there are distinctions between the two. For instance, mentoring is "a more informal and open-ended relationship than coaching" and coaching is a "paying job" while mentoring is a "voluntary setup" (pp. 38-39).
I have been required to read 3 books on mentoring for one of my classes and then was required to review and report on another. I examined 5 additional books on mentoring and coaching and this was by far the most complete and readable - in fact, it was the only one that was enjoyable. Mr. Nigro's sense of humor is only outdone by his understanding of how humans operate and his ability to easily explain what so many other authors must fall asleep writing about - how managers can effectively coach and mentor their staff. I highly recommend The Everything Coaching and Mentoring Book.
This is a great book on Coaching and Mentoring. It covers a lot of ground on what it takes to manage as a coach in today's corporate milieu. The author displays a keen grasp of the material, along with a good sense of humor, from cover to cover. The examples and case studies in the text always hit their marks. I recommend this book for all coaches and mentors, and all would-be coaches and mentors, too. It's a very thorough introduction to the managing wave of the future. And it's written in a style that is never dull, which is the bane of so many other books on this subject matter.
