Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0838913296, Paperback)Your library's future is as good as the talent you develop. Too many mentorship programs are cursory; without structure and expectations, they accomplish little beyond a procedural orientation. But a solid, sustainable mentorship program can be a game changer for libraries, with long-term results that include career development, organization-wide professionalism, and retention. Here, the 2016 2017 president-elect of the American Library Association offers an accessible guide to putting mentorship into practice, complete with scanning checklists and critical questions that will assist you in designing, planning, and implementing your own program. Bypassing abstract management theories in favor of succinct action items, this book includesFour case-method scenarios that will prepare you for making decisions in common mentoring situationsA discussion of mentor, mentee, reverse-mentoring, and co-mentoring terminology, and how to choose the best language to shape the expectations of your programTips on how to apply nine measurements you probably already use for evaluation, plus five new ones that will make your program even more effectiveSuggested content and events in a mentorship curriculum, with sample goals, job descriptions, and advice on program planningWays to address objections to a mentorship programAdministrators at all types of institutions will benefit from Todaro's sensible, to-the-point insights into creating and sustaining a mentorship program.
