Download The Mentor Connection book, In the past several years the concept of the mentor has become a part of the common parlance. There is a widespread interest in the pivotal role of mentoring for the success of individuals. Research has made it plain that mentors play a major role in career development. Now human resources and organizational development groups have come to appreciate the role of mentoring on the donor as well as recipient, for the career of the helper no less than the person(s) being helped. Michael Zey, in this study based upon interviews with over 150 executives in Fortune 500 companies and smaller firms, provides a major exploration of the sociological dynamics of the mentoring relationships, locating this phenomenon in the fields of career growth, job satisfaction, and social mobility. In doing so, Zey offers a framework for the understanding of corporate culture, an approach that raises this volume far beyond the usual self-help literature found in this field.

How are these developed and nurtured in a nursing career? Can mentors make a difference? They can and do, according to this book---edited by two pioneering researchers in the field of nursing mentorship.

They are joined by more than a hundred nurses, including nurse leaders such as Beverly Malone, Marla Salmon, and Joyce Fitzpatrick, who contribute stories, essays, and personal reflections on mentorship. Their voices, in addition to the editor's research, suggest that nurses are inventing a new, evolving, and very meaningful paradigm, which reaps mentorship's classic benefits: career success and advancement personal and professional satisfaction, enhanced self-esteem and confidence, preparation for leadership roles and succession, and strengthening of the profession. The book describes the dynamics of both informal mentor relationships and structured mentorship programs, such as those used in schools of nursing to help disadvantaged students. In addition to looking at education, the book describes how mentorship plays a role in the practice setting, in professional organizations, and with peers and groups, and how it promotes international and cross-cultural understanding.

by Larry D. Florman, The Portable Medical Mentor Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format.

Without imparting any education in medicine per se, each chapter teaches the prospective medical trainee the art of being a physician. The reader will be convinced early on, that there is more to being a good doctor than medical school didactics. They will learn what residency admission chiefs, interviewers and faculty are most impressed with in an applicant. The first few chapters speak of the importance of, and being the best student of medicine that one can be. An extensive review of the most current government mandated laws, rules and regulations are in dedicated chapters throughout the text and can be used as a ready reference. The book brings to the reader the very up-to-date and new concepts of the ever confusing and changing realm of managed care. Additionally, one of the main purposes of this book, is to introduce to the student of medicine the use and need of advisors and mentors. This chapter entitled “Mentors” embellishes the age old tradition of true mentoring in medicine, a practice which is just now reviving itself. Medical students, trainees, and practicing physicians at all levels have had an integral part in reviewing and making the chapters more relevant to today’s highly competitive and complicated playing field. The Portable Medical Mentor: Training Success addresses every facet of “how to be a good physician” in an easy to read and down to earth, practical fashion. It is intended that once read, the student will be more competitive in residency applications, better thought of as a physician, by peers, and patients, and more comfortable in their chosen specialty.
