Connecting: Mentoring Relationships You Need to Succeed in Life

Connecting: Mentoring Relationships You Need to Succeed in Life

$30.99

Paperback
Mentoring relationships are important. Here's how to seek them out and use them to grow spiritually and personally.

- Publisher WE WERE MEANT FOR EACH OTHER. None of us are fully equipped to excel in life. Our weaknesses, blind spots, limited capabilities, and lack of experience all point to one thing-interdependence. Which is why connecting with others plays such an indispensable role in healthy development. Having access to the wisdom, experience, vision, and direction of those who have gone before can put you years ahead of where you'd be on your own. And, in addition to enhancing you own potential in all of life's growth areas (spiritual, emotional, professional, relational, etc.), the things you'll discover will equip you to help others as well. So why don't we place more of a priority on developing these essential, empowering relationships? Are we uneasy with the vulnerability, assuming it will be perceived as weakness? Do we hesitate to ask, not wanting to impose on anyone else's busy schedule? Are we reluctant to provide guidance for others, not wanting to come across as proud or self-important? Each of these factors can play a part, of course. But the main reason we miss out, according to Stanley and Clinton, is that we simply don't understand the true nature of mentoring-a problem that is easily overcome.

- Publisher We are all interdependent on each other, which is why connecting with others plays such an indispensable role in healthy development. Having access to the wisdom, experience, vision, and direction of those who have gone before can put you years ahead of where you?d be on your own. And what you discover will equip you to help others. ^ Mentoring relationships can be key to discipleship and evangelism. This book shows you how to be do it effectively.

A Very Helpful Book
5 stars By Dr. Bernard Low, Aug 11 2017
In this very helpful book, the authors Stanley and Clinton share with the reader the nine kinds of mentors that we (may) need at different phases in our lives. They are: the Discipler, Spiritual Guide, Coach, Counselor, Teacher, Sponsor, Contemporary Models and Historical Models. The nature of mentoring that these mentors provide range from the intensive to the occasional to the passive. For some people who may not have access to mentors, Stanley and Clinton very helpfully point out how we can still be mentored indirectly by the people around us and also by those who have left behind autobiographies or whose lives have inspired biographies on them. Besides these kinds of (upward) mentors, the authors also underscore the importance of having downward mentoring as well as co-mentoring. Their book concludes with an important chapter on how we can finish well. Highly recommended.
