Zachary & Fischler: Starting Strong
In this installment of our illustrated business book series, we’re celebrating Mentorship Month.
In Starting Strong, Lois Zachary and Lory Fischler cover the basics of a successful mentoring relationship in the form of a fable—they tell the story of a young mentee and the seasoned professional who will become her mentor. Weaved into the story are nuggets of wisdom on everything from establishing a comfortable back-and-forth to holding a productive, effective mentor-mentee meeting. Lois and Lory answer questions we didn’t even know we had and remind us that finding a mentor, someone who can guide us (without doing it for us) and listen to us (without telling us what to do), isn’t just important, but is also totally achievable.
