Mentor Manager, Mentor Parent is about how managers and parents can use the same skills to develop responsible employees and children while building successful relationships at work and at home.

Who should read this book?

Mentor Manager, Mentor Parent is valuable for anyone who is a manager at work and who has children at home. No other book provides a model of such clear, step-by-step instructions about how to use the same skills to develop employees and children.

What was the reason for writing this book? Did you see a need for this book?

Absolutely! Typically managers and parents want to do a good job at work and at home. When they think these two roles are different, they think they must learn two sets of skills in order to be effective. What is unique about Mentor Manager, Mentor Parent is that we combine successful management methods with down-to-earth parenting practices. This is the one book that you can take from your briefcase to your nightstand and back again!

In what ways are managing and parenting alike?

Ultimately the role of effective managers and effective parents is to develop responsibility and self-reliance in others regardless of how old they are. However, when faced with problem behavior, managers and parents often struggle to control their employees and children. The most effective managers and parents move beyond their concern about control and focus instead on encouraging responsibility and building relationships.
