Being an Effective Mentor: 101 Practical Strategies for Success
Ida O. Abbott, Esq., 2006.
Effective mentoring is one of the most important contributions experienced lawyers can make to the future of their firm, and this 32-page booklet is an ideal quick-read resource for busy lawyers. Ida Abbott, author of The Lawyer’s Guide to Mentoring, offers a wide range of tips organized under subheadings — from tips for the first meeting to tips for setting the mentee’s goals, promoting effective communication, facilitating learning, integrating the mentee into the firm, building the mentee’s confidence, mentoring members of minority groups, enriching the mentoring process, and concluding the mentoring relationship. This booklet can be used on its own or in tandem with a smaller booklet for mentees entitled Working with a Mentor: 50 Practical Suggestions for Success.
