Consultant, trainer, senior partner with the Chip Bell Group, and co-author of Managers as Mentors: Building Partnerships for Learning, Third Edition, Chip R. Bell describes how the relationship between a mentor and the protege goes far beyond coaching to become a real learning partnership. Chip Bell provides a fresh approach to mentoring that establishes every manager as a potential mentor for colleagues, co-workers, and team members. Instead of simply coaching to create improved performance, Chip Bell demonstrates how the mentorship becomes a mutual and collaborative learning opportunity. Chip Bell outlines the SAGE structure of the mentoring experience. The four steps of Surrendering, Accepting, Gifting, and Extending create a positive and cooperative learning environment that benefits the mentor, the mentee, and the whole organization. Chip Bell also shares ideas for continued, self planned learning after the mentoring experience ends. Learn how to be both a great mentor, and a strong mentee, and share in the lifelong learning process.
