About the Summary

In exploring such topics as selecting or becoming a mentor, how to handle conversations that don’t go as planned, and whether or not mentoring was still relevant in a post-pandemic virtual work world, author Scott Miller began outlining and codifying his point of view on mentoring. This resulted in his identification and explanation of the various roles that mentors play and how they differ based on the mentor-mentee dynamic and, eventually, the writing of The Ultimate Guide to Great Mentorship. The intent is to provide a road map for all the roles a mentor will be asked to play, consciously or unconsciously. For each role, mentors will learn a description of the role, the goal, upsides, downsides, and the skills required to be successful.

In This Summary, You Will Learn:

  • The thirteen roles that mentors play.
  • What your goal as a mentor is in each role.
  • How the execution of the role can have upsides and downsides.
  • Which skills are essential for success in each role.
