This edited volume brings together conceptual and empirical work from various professional fields to inform a perspective on mentoring that goes beyond what is needed for today and orients toward what is needed for the future in order to promote healthy and productive organizations. This perspective is important because the pace of change in organizations is rapidand increasingly so. Under conditions of rapid and ongoing change, employees, students, and colleagues all are learners; and the learning needs of these adults demand meaningful and focused strategies for professional development. A major strategy with demonstrated value for fostering learning among adults is mentoring, which contributes both relational and structural support for such learning. This support helps organizations build communities of practice in which colleagues alternate the role of mentor and mentee by sharing different types of expertise and different perspectives on organizational challenges. Chapters within the book focus on theoretical perspectives on mentoring, the connection between change and mentoring, the character of the leadership that mentoring entails, the developmental processes that mentees experience, the transformation of the mentee as a result of mentoring, the value of matching mentor and mentee styles, and the role of mentoring in organizational team building. Furthermore, some chapters explore the similarities and differences in individual versus group mentoring. And some of the contributions elaborate linkages among mentoring concepts and those used in related practices such as coaching and distributed leadership.

Abstract : Purpose: Against a British policy backdrop, which places an ever- increasing emphasis on workplace learning in pre-service professional programmes, the purpose of this paper is to investigate the contribution of the mentor to professional knowledge development in nursing, paramedicine, social work and teaching. Design/methodology/approach: Taking the form of a literature review, it explores the influence of policy, professional and theoretical conceptualisations of the mentor role, and structural factors influencing the mentor's contribution to professional knowledge. Findings: Where there are clearly delineated policy obligations for the mentor to "teach", mentors are more likely to make connections between theoretical and practical knowledge. When this responsibility is absent or informal, they are inclined to attend to the development of contextual knowledge with a consequent disconnect between theory and practice. In all four professions, mentors face significant challenges, especially with regard to the conflict between supporting and assessor roles, and the need to attend to heavy contractual workloads, performance targets and mentoring roles in tandem. Practical implications: The authors argue first for the need for more attention to the pedagogy of mentoring, and second for structural changes to workload allocations, career progression and mentoring education. In order to develop more coherent and interconnected professional knowledge between different domains, and the reconciliation of different perspectives, it would be useful to underpin mentoring pedagogy with Bhabba's notion of "third space". Originality/value: The paper makes a contribution to the field since it considers new obligations incumbent on mentors to assist mentees in reconciling theoretical and practical knowledge by the consequence of policy and also takes a multi-professional perspective.

The tradition of moving from one job to another in the criminal justice profession with the belief that on departure a new person will be brought in to assume the duties of his or her predecessor is archaic and ineffective. It is rare to replace someone and have the benefit of his or her counsel and experience in learning the nuances of the job and its responsibilities. Mentoring provides a framework, whether informal or formal, to interact, support, transfer knowledge, and guide the prot©♭g©♭ to the desired goal. This book provides a blueprint of mentoring theory and practice, testing, evaluati.

They have received awards for mentoring services to the library profession and to university graduates.
