This is the first comprehensive guide designed to help mentors and mentees bridge gaps between and among cultures--a growing issue in today's diverse workplace--and it's coauthored by the world's leading authority on mentoring.
As the workforce becomes increasingly diverse, it is imperative that organizations learn to attract, engage, and retain employees and leverage their unique perspectives. But few leaders have fully developed the aptitudes required for mentoring, let alone the level of cultural competency needed to bridge differences. In Bridging Differences for Better Mentoring, leadership mentoring experts Lisa Fain and Lois Zachary present a framework for achieving cultural competence in mentor-mentee communication using accessible, understandable, and practical tools and strategies. The result is more agility, comfort, and capability in their readers to build meaningful mentoring relationships and communicate effectively across differences. These tools lead to better, more culturally sensitive leaders, a safer work environment, and a more inclusive workplace for all.
