The Mentor’s Companion is the essential guide to what mentoring is and what are the necessary skills required for it to be effective. Based on in-depth research and case studies, this book introduces a new model—distal mentoring—which embodies best practice and can mitigate negative outcomes. Illustrated with relevant scenarios and mentoring tips, Rhianon Washington lays out the mentoring process step-by-step through its fundamental applications. After the Washington’s initial exploration of the nature of mentoring, she explains key techniques such as deep listening skills, empathy, and powerful questioning. She also explains how mentors and mentees can develop their relationships through empathy, emotional intelligence, and rapport building. Applying theories and features in a practical and understandable way, The Mentor’s Companion is a fundamental development tool for active practitioners seeking to improve their effectiveness as mentors.

"This very useful book emphasises the skills and processes involved in mentoring and highlights aspects not previously covered. The chapters on toxicity and distal mentoring are particularly welcome. A must-read for all mentors."

"At last, a critical discussion of mentoring, including a range of models that readers from a wide range of organisations will find relevant and stimulating. Rhianon Washington provides clear and critical insights, including the powerful concept of toxicity and the use of distal approaches to mentoring that help to manage conflict when it occurs. Each chapter in this book concludes with some very helpful tips that readers will find useful when applying theory to practice."
