After earning a PhD from the University of Texas, I taught at the University of British Columbia for 15 years, where I began to do research on how to develop successful Formalized Mentoring Programs and train Mentor-Protege Partners to achieve intended goals.
Seeing the benefits gained by proteges, mentors and the sponsoring organization, I left academia in 1986 to devote myself full-time to foster formalized mentoring [along with my wife, Marilynne Miles Gray]. Together, we organized the First International Conference on Mentoring and published the only journal on mentoring.
I have trained over 20,000 mentors and proteges to work together, using Gray's Mentor-Protege Relationship Model™ and materials we especially developed, such as the Mentoring Compatibility Indicator™, Mentoring Style Indicator™, Mentoring Action Plan™, Mentoring Agreement™, and Protege Needs Inventory™. I’ve helped over 150 organizations to define, design and deliver different kinds of Mentoring Programs and develop Mentoring Relationships that Work.
Have you needed mentor direction, but received none? Has a mentor told you what to do, when you needed a sounding board? Did a protege not heed your wise counsel? Or was too dependent? If you answered “Yes,” Situational Mentoring will be useful. Book purchasers can receive a free copy of the Mentoring Style Indicator by contacting Dr. Gray, so you can identify your preferred Mentoring Style.
