(The following are reflections based on Walter C. Wright’s book, Mentoring: The Promise of Relational Leadership.)
Want to start or enhance a mentoring relationship? Are you interested in having a relationship with someone who might serve as a mentor?
Are you already a mentor to one or more persons but you are not sure how to make the most of such a relationship?
Would you find it helpful to hear what questions have been particularly useful to a mentor?
Then, read Mentoring: The Promise of Relational Leadership by Walter C. Wright. Wright is a Senior Fellow of the De Pree Leadership Center at Fuller Theological Seminary. He is the former president of Regent College in Vancouver, British Columbia. Wright not only has much experience in mentoring others but also has experienced good mentors as well in longtime pastor Donald Bubna and Max De Pree.
Even in the foreword of the book, written by Max De Pree, there is much help for any mentor or mentoree.
