This book offers faculty and leaders of academic institutions insights on issues surrounding faculty mentoring and how national and international co-mentoring networks can contribute to the success of their members. These networks help female faculty and faculty from traditionally marginalized groups to engage positively with their careers, to create supportive systems that help them navigate the often-difficult path of academia, and gain success in their research work and publications. The book discusses the international women’s network C-Y-F, which works across national and international boundaries, embracing women from five continents, diverse linguistic, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, different generations and academic ranks. Contributions by authors from traditionally marginalized groups add to a better understanding of mentoring and co-mentoring from a variety of perspectives.

This book explores what mentoring is and what are the essential skills required for it to be effective. Based on research, a new model is introduced – distal mentoring – which embodies best practice and can mitigate negative outcomes. Illustrated with relevant scenarios and mentoring tips, this book is a development tool for active practitioners, and expresses the mentoring process by emphasising its fundamental applications. This is reinforced by case studies and supporting theory, delivering a practical yet digestible medium. Following an initial exploration of the nature of mentoring, key techniques such as deep listening skills, empathy and powerful questioning are examined. Along with developing the relationship through empathy, emotional intelligence and rapport building, this book provides a comprehensive text in its introduction of mentoring as well as its recommendation of best practice.

The first collection in the area of mentoring that applies theory to real-world practice, research, programs, and recommendations from an international perspective In today’s networked world society, mentoring is a crucial area for study that requires a deep international understanding for effective implementation. Despite the immense benefits of mentoring, current literature on this subject is surprisingly sparse. The Wiley International Handbook of Mentoring fills the need for a comprehensive volume of in-depth information on the different types of mentoring programs, effective mentoring practices, and emerging practical and applicable theories. Based on sound research methodologies, this unique text presents original essays by experts from over ten different countries, demonstrating the ways mentoring can make a difference in the workplace and in the classroom; these experts have an understanding of mentoring worldwide having worked in mentoring in over forty countries. Each of the Handbook’s four sections—mentoring paradigms, practices, programs, and possibilities—include a final synthesis chapter authored by the section editors that captures the essence of the lessons learned, applies a global context, and recommends research avenues for further exploration. This innovative volume demonstrates how mentoring in any culture can help employees to complete tasks and advance in their positions, aid in socialization and assimilation in various settings, provide diverse groups access to resources and information, navigate through personalities, politics, policies, and procedures, and much more. Offers an inclusive, international perspective that supports moving mentoring into a discipline of its own and lays a theoretical foundation for further research Shows how emerging practical theories can be implemented in actual programs and various scenarios Examines a wide range of contemporary paradigms, practices, and programs in the field of mentoring, including a panorama of introspections on mentoring from international scholars and practitioners Includes historical and epistemological content, background information and definitions, and overviews of fundamental aspects of mentoring The Wiley International Handbook of Mentoring is an essential volume for a global readership, particularly teachers of mentoring courses, trainers, and researchers and practitioners in a variety of fields such as business, education, government, politics, sciences, industry, or sports.

In the past two decades, the Internet has come to dominate every aspect of everyday life. This has been a huge change for many of us, and, for the younger generation - born into this situation - there has been no other way of living. How does this new way of life affect our health and happiness, our well-being? How does it affect our relationships, our friendships? Has the definition of friendship changed now that we have hundreds of friends on Facebook? Why is it that some people find it so hard to talk to people in their daily lives but find it so easy on the Internet? People spend so much time on the Internet - so what do we actually do on there? Why are some people so aggressive and others exceptionally helpful? Are these behaviors that we see from the same people offline? How do we take decisions online and which groups would we rather belong to online where nobody knows us, rather than revealing our true identity to the outside world? The new edition of 'The Social Net' provides a comprehensive understanding of the social aspects of the Internet. It contains chapters on topics such as identity manipulation, online romantic relationships, online decision making, the internet and aggression, and online prejudice and discrimination. The book provides the reader with an understanding of both the negative and positive influences of the net and is an exceptionally useful guide for for how to use the net to improve wellbeing. Today, when there is so much negative publicity surrounding the Internet - despite our reliance on it - this book provides a much needed balanced understanding of the Net and its influence.

More Than 85 Broads introduces us to a remarkable group of strong, passionate, and talented women who all define success on their own terms. Along with author Janet Hanson's riveting account of how she built 85 Broads into a groundbreaking global network community, each of these women candidly tells her own powerful story. Meet Trailblazers who need no roadmap or formula for success-just their own optimism, confidence, and gut instincts. Meet Adventurers who push past boundaries and find new ways to define success for themselves. Meet Parents who are building true partnerships rather than just “balancing” their lives and careers. And meet Visionaries who are answering the questions: “What's my passion?” “What's my destiny?” “What's my gift?” Whether you're striving to align your passion with your career, standing at a crossroads deciding which path to choose, or well on the road to fulfilling your lifelong dreams, you can tap into the enormous power and potential of “some of the most incredible women on the planet” and . . . Discover how building a strong network gives you your own unique platform for creating new opportunities, connections, and personal definitions of success. Learn how women are blazing their own trails as business leaders, entrepreneurs, survivors, philanthropists, and parents. Find out how smart, successful and courageous women really think about their careers, their lives, their families, and their futures-all in their own voices. “The most powerful and courageous voice any of us can listen to is our own, but it is often the one that we spend the least time cultivating and tuning into...” writes Hanson. More Than 85 Broads is an essential read for women and men at every stage of their careers and lives. It will surprise you, motivate you, and inspire you to connect with others. Most importantly, it will help you find your own passion, build your own network, and define success on your own terms.

The Mentoring Pocketbook - now in its third edition - shows how to design and manage a mentoring scheme, how to prepare to be a mentor, how to conduct mentoring sessions, how to maintain the relationship through the different stages and how to evaluate mentoring. Before looking at the actual mentoring process, the authors deal with the uses of mentoring within organisations (particularly in the context of managing change and mission/value statements) and explain how mentoring differs from coaching, training and appraisals. The process of mentoring is explained with the aid of a 3-stage model. This can be used to assess yourself as a mentor, as a map to guide you through the process, as a review tool and as a means to develop the mentee's ability to use the model independently. Subsequent chapters explore the mentor-mentee relationship and address key issues and questions. Although primarily aimed at the mentor, The Mentoring Pocketbook is also helpful to mentees. A consistently best-selling title within the Management Pocketbooks Series! "Mentoring is probably the most powerful developmental process people can experience. And when it works, it develops two for the price of one. The Mentoring Pocketbook is a no-nonsense primer for the first-time mentor or mentee." Prof. David Clutterbuck, Co-founder, The European Mentoring and Coaching Council "The Mentoring Pocketbook is the basis of the Mentoring Programme at Mövenpick Hotels & Resorts. Mentoring has been fundamental to supporting our approach to talent development throughout the company. Not only is it providing our top talent with the support they need to make the challenging transition to more senior leadership roles but it also supports our current generation of business leaders. Mentoring has greatly enhanced their unique contribution to the company and the company's learning and development culture."
