Mentoring Matters: What Every Mentor Needs to Know
In Mentoring Matters, Tom Osborne makes the case for mentoring and explains how each of us can get others to give their best effort without using intimidation tactics or manipulation. In addition to showing how any coach, parent, or employer can better lead his team, he explains how the TeamMates Mentoring Program has grown from just a few players meeting with students into a national organization.
