This pamphlet presents the thoughts of six physician mentors in family practice and their third-year medical students, as they reflect on their practice and on their teaching or learning of clinical skills. An examination of the role of the family-practice physician as mentor may help teacher educators and cooperating teachers gain a valuable perspective on the common tasks and challenges that these two caring professions face in preparing the next generation of their members. The pamphlet analyzes the mentor's role in terms of: (1) the mentor's philosophy of care and how the mentor communicates his or her vision to students; (2) the nature of the physician's teaching and mentoring, particularly in regard to how the physician gives "bad news" and deals with difficult patients; and (3) helping prepare the newcomer to tolerate uncertainty and to reflect more critically on the daily experiences of medical practice. Lessons for teacher education are discussed, emphasizing that: competent cooperating teachers, like good medical mentors, are dedicated professionals who follow best practice and provide continual support and increasing autonomy to their students; cooperating teachers must make more explicit the model of problem solving and decision making they employ; and cooperating teachers need to develop ways to promote student teachers' critical reflection.

When women succeed, we all win. Breaking Through explores the mentoring relationship, and unravels its effects on women, businesses, society, and the economy. In 2010, author Martine Liautaud founded the Women Business Mentoring Initiative (WBMI) to support women entrepreneurs with the targeted advice and personalized guidance that can only come from a mentor. In late 2015, she set up the Women Initiative Foundation to broaden her action in favor of women in the business world. This book encapsulates the WBMI mission and other similar experiences inside international and US corporations, showing how mentoring and sponsorship can take many forms—and how each form benefits women in business. Through evidence-based narratives, you'll learn what real women have gained from both sides of the dynamic, and why they credit mentoring with the strength of their business success. These stories show how mentoring yields increased efficiency, improved financials, more effective management, increased innovation, a broader talent pool, and increased revenues, and how helping women succeed in business leads to increased philanthropy and improves community sustainability. Gender equality has made huge strides in the US and Western Europe, but this progress is only apparent in the junior levels of the workplace. This book shows how mentoring women entrepreneurs and women managers provides the key that opens the door to the new economy. Understand why mentoring is key to women's economic advancement Learn how mentoring yields tangible benefits beyond the workplace Delve into the experiences of real mentor/mentee pairs Consider the effectiveness of various types of mentoring Despite the increasing opportunities for women in business, statistics and pervading stereotypes suggest that true gender equality is still far on the horizon. Mentoring and sponsorship can be tremendously helpful to women looking to achieve great things—the wisdom of experience is a powerful asset in business strategy and decision-making, and the mentor/mentee relationship benefits everyone. Breaking Through makes a compelling case for the effectiveness of mentoring, with real women's stories of success.

A Disciple Maker is a personal story that invites all to love youth just as they are. John Hardison lives a plain and ordinary life as a veterinarian in Southern California, yet he reaches hundreds and touches thousand with the love of Jesus. This is his advantage. He has no theology training, no church title, yet he is a "father to the fatherless," doing for decades. His act of love to countless children and youth brought him a group of young ethnic guys who proclaimed themselves "Docs Boys to Jesus Men." That simple title describes the transformation of many of them to be successful in profession and family matters. Doc Hardison loves them just as they are. He loves teens who have depression, considered suicide, had same-gender attraction, possessed criminal records, came from broken families, lived in poverty, and the list goes on. This book contains his story but, just as important, their story. He invited "Docs Boys" from around the world to write their account of the power of acceptance and love. They get to tell their side of what it looks like to be mentored and fathered in the Kingdom of God. Not all the young people Doc cares for have rosy, picture-perfect stories but they know who to call if they need help. He remains in touch with many and even as their families grow he remains a blessing across generations. John encourages everyone to take the time to buy a hamburger and talk to young people with the Truth of God's Word, sharing the love of Jesus, doing so in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Breaking the Circle of One offers lively, personal accounts of graduate students' and professors' experiences of mentorship within universities and schools. This self-study writing group formed in an effort to provide and receive support. The circle of one the group signifies remained open to others and became integrated within multiple communities and represents the experience of isolation, competition, and abandonment faced by many in education. The chapters, diverse in their stories and points of view, redefine mentoring relationships and structures. Contributors engage their circular model of education as a framework for analysis. They also view their model as representative of a process throughout life that brings mentors and mentees close together at times, and further away at other times. This book is organized around four themes: the actual teaching of preservice student teachers; the use of innovative approaches to mentoring within established university systems; the interpersonal design of school-university partnership programs; and the search for new patterns of mentoring within teacher education.
