So how do we mentor this hungry generation? One life at a time. But even this is intimidating for us. Most adults have never been taught how to nurture a developmental relationship. Our models have been poor, and the baton of wisdom continues to be dropped between generations. Our questions vary: how do we select someone to mentor? What should be our focus? What does this generation really need? How do we foster life-change? What happens if I fail or they fail to follow through? How do I speak with authority into the life of a young person?
This handbook was originally created by Tim Elmore under the title Mentoring - How to Invest Your Life in Other. This edition has been updated and expanded - with new chapters containing the latest research and creative ideas - to make it a revolutionary new resource. It is an encyclopedia on the subject of mentoring. It's designed for staff in colleges, public schools, non-profit organizations, corporations, churches - anywhere young leaders hang out.
