May 5, 2008

"Coaching and Mentoring for Dummies" is a book focusing on developing better performance and achievement levels in employees, helping to identify important aspects of how to effectively coach and mentor.

"Coaching and Mentoring for Dummies" emphasizes the importance of delegating responsibilities. When you are training someone, it’s best to let him or her learn from doing a job themselves than to watch you do it. Good managers all know how to delegate and what work they should and can do themselves versus what they can and should disseminate to others. In the delegation process, it’s important to use clear communication to keep it all straight.

Other methods which "Coaching and Mentoring for Dummies" teach are on how to motivate, so job satisfaction and productivity can be increased. Mentors are taught how to bring forth a response by asking questions, rather than by barking out an order, and also how to make performance reviews and evaluations more positive, and less stressful for everybody.

Worksheets are included in the book to assist you in preparation and self assessment. They are usable as provided or they may be customized to adapt to your firm’s specific needs. Such topics as ethnic and racial diversity and behavioral issues in the workplace are also covered as they relate to the coaching process. The book also discusses ways of recognizing your employees’ individual strengths and contributions and how to encourage them.

Whether you have had formal training or not, you can benefit from "Coaching and Mentoring for Dummies" if you supervises or train other employees. Any mentor, regardless of experience level, will find this book a useful resource to handle issues that arise during mentoring and coaching. The information in the book is convenient and clearly presented. The book is very cheap, relative to the value of the knowledge it contains.

Marty Brounstein’s "Coaching and Mentoring for Dummies" is an excellent addition to the Dummies line of self-help books that, despite their name, are smart choices for people seeking help with their lives. This book guides workers to greater performance and accomplishment by categorizing the functions and performances of an efficient coach or counselor while emphasizing the delegation of responsibilities.
