ABOUT THE BOOK

Channeling Wisdom, A Practitioner’s Guide to Effective Mentoring in the Workplace, reflects the author’s personal experiences as a mentor and as a mentee, accumulated over her decades-long career. Formally acknowledged by her work colleagues as an effective mentor and manager, she has been recognized for her “unique ability to bring humor, leadership and respect to the work environment.” She is considered “an exceptional consultant who gets right to the heart of the problem.” Here in Channeling Wisdom, she makes the case that effective mentoring sets up a “win-win-win” scenario in which management, mentees and mentors all achieve their objectives and reach their potential as employees.

This book should be titled "A Practical Pocket Guide to Growing People."

Dr. Hastbacka blends her personal experience from a career of mentoring with citations from the best in academic and business writing on the topic and distills the mixture into a compact, usable and entertaining read. The lessons found in this book have helped me in my work as a supervisor and mentor.
