Extends the theoretical horizon of mentoring: The theoretical section of the Handbook builds and extends mentoring theory by drawing on a diverse and rich literature of related theories, such as network theory, adult development theory, relational theory, communication theory, personal change theory, work-family theory and theories of emotional intelligence. Builds a bridge between the practice and study of mentoring: The Handbook includes chapters that address not only formal mentoring programs, but also mentoring practices that relate to leadership development programs, diversity programs and international perspectives. The Handbook is a "must-have" reference for understanding the key debates and issues facing mentoring scholars and practitioners, and provides a theory-driven road map to guide future research and practice in the field of mentoring.

This book is a call for confident, skilled and knowledgeable practice in social work. The current managerialist agenda has restricted judgement and the exercise of discretion in the profession, and, more damagingly, has played down the social justice components of social work, as well as the responsibilities for therapeutic and change-orientated interventions. This book explores how, through strong self-leadership, social workers can both explain and demonstrate how social work can achieve positive change. Offering a fresh and innovative view on leadership for social workers, managers of social services and social work students at all levels, the book identifies tactics and strategies to provide leadership both within a team and in senior positions.

Coaching has long become mainstream. Thousands of people paid 2,000 each to attend a three-day seminar in 2008 in London's Excel centre to listen to Tony Robbins - the man credited with 'turning around' Bill Clinton in the wake of the Monica Lewinsky affair - and discover how to 'unleash the power within'. But the big business has been in executive coaching. A top coach in America can earn over $15,000 a day - well beyond the normal fees charged by most consultants and occupational psychologists - and, according to Harvard Business Review, US companies are spending more than $1 billion a year on this 'must-have' activity. A similar trend is being witnessed in Britain, where it's estimated that 100,000 managers a year now undergo coaching. This guide explains what coaching, and its cheaper and simpler alternative, mentoring are, outlining the different types of coaching and their cost. Crucially, it assesses the effectiveness of coaching and mentoring, and it gives advice based on the lessons learned by those interviewed for the book on making coaching work successfully and avoiding mistakes that lead to disappointment or even harm.

Burnout is a taboo subject. Admitting you are burning out in your job is tantamount to career suicide for some employees; for their organizations it is like raising a white flag in the war for talent. But suppose that preventing burnout is the worst thing you can do. Suppose for some people, particularly high fliers, it represents a call to deep and urgent learning about themselves and how they relate to the world. Suppose that we need instead to learn to manage burnout and harness the powerful learning potential of the experience, and in so doing build careers aligned with individual meaning and purpose, sustainable in the long term. What would organizations and their people need to do to achieve this? This book: * Explains what burnout is, how it is becoming the 21st-century business equivalent of the 'black death', and how it can derail your career * Highlights the financial, reputational and personal costs to organizations and people * Details how burnout can deliver a killer punch to talent management and the development of the leaders of tomorrow, and risk the retention, growth and productivity of high fliers * Explores why some of us develop a strong sense of our own, personal identity at work, while others find it more difficult * Presents a coaching process to manage burnout and harness its learning potential * Provides a framework for individuals to build careers aligned with individual meaning and purpose.

Do you want your school or district to truly become a learning organization? How do you foster lasting and meaningful change? How do you avoid rejection of your new approach to teaching and learning? If you've been involved in a school change effort, you most likely have struggled with these questions. To ease this struggle, Douglas B. Reeves has proposed a new framework to promote effective change efforts through teacher leadership. In this book, you will explore not only cutting-edge research findings, but also practical applications that can help improve student achievement and educational equity. You can learn how to achieve lasting results as an educator and school leader. You can learn from other teacher researchers how to infuse your classroom, school, or district with enthusiasm, meaningful teaching, improved results, and greater satisfaction. Even as you strive for innovation, you naturally want to avoid having the next new thing become the latest old thing. To achieve lasting change, educators must embrace evidence-based decision making rather than the fact-free debate. Reeves has found that educators more readily accept decisions they disagree with if they believe the decision-making process was fair--not based on opinion or hierarchy. Reeves aims for you to help him build a network of teacher leaders based on this new evidence-based framework that will foster resilient learning organizations. Come along--explore, act, and share.
