Mentoring Leaders: The Power of Storytelling for Building Leadership in Health Care and Education

By Ellie Gilfoyle, DSc(Hon), FAOTA; Ann Grady, PhD, FAOTA; and Cathy Nielson, MPH, FAOTA
With Contributions From Wendy Coster, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA

As the workplace becomes increasingly diverse and collaborative, many health care professions and education programs have recognized the importance of building a leadership culture through mentoring. Mentoring Leaders presents a unique guide on this fundamental topic by demonstrating how storytelling can powerfully inspire, motivate, and teach both mentors and mentees.

Going beyond the traditional one-to-one model of mentoring, this reader-friendly text provides in-depth discussion on various ways and forms mentoring can place, including group and offsite mentoring. A workbook offers readers many stories reflecting the core concepts as well as questions for self-reflection.

Highlights and topics include

  • Part I: Mentoring Leaders—leadership and communication, nature of mentoring, power of stories, outcomes of an effective mentoring program
  • Part II: The Workbook—self-reflection and growth, community building, enacting leadership practices, building followership, leading for the future.

Mentoring Leaders is an entertaining yet instructive guide for experienced and novice mentors and mentees who seek to become—and inspire—future leaders.
