Alwys interesting on personal development, team management and business management i decided to write this book about mentoring where i involved hr manager, mentor and expert to understand the value added of this kind of discipline to company and people in the different stages of career (from graduate to C-level manager).
A section is dedicated to MBA: how can mentoring be implemented in this program to be more effective, how can be useful to MBA students and graduated?.
What's the story behind your latest book?
During the MBA i heared about mentoring and the possibility that, following the advices of a mentor, it is possible to understand the path that match each one personality and, speaking with some mentors, try to understand better how it could help and i persuaded myself that it could be a useful tools for reorienting the career path and understand your own path and specialties. In the last years i discussed with many people that lost their job because of the financial crisis and have big difficulties to find another one or that, with an high level profile and big professional experience, don't find job positions that match their profile and make them satisfied. I decided to write this book to clarify mentoring potential and all aspect could be interesting for people who already know and who doesn't know. I hope it could be useful to understand more about it
What is your e-reading device of choice?
I use iPad to read ebooks. I think it's a very good device, especially for who doesn't want to use a specific device to read and ring more devices every time he travels
What is mentoring? Which is the difference between mentoring and coaching? Who is the right mentor for me? Is it useful for companies to reach their targets? Could it improve employability and personal development of people with an MBA degree? These and other questions are discussed with mentors, hr managers and experts
The preface is by Mr Gaetano Bonfissuto.
