Ready for Mentorship? These 3 Books are Perfect for Mentors and Mentees

female mentor reviews assignment of male mentee on a laptop

Recently I became interested in mentorship.

I noticed how our most successful authors had one thing in common: they all have mentors. Even John Maxwell has mentors!

From his father, Melvin, and his brother, Larry, to Coach John Wooden and Kurt Campmeier, Maxwell has been inspired by many different types of mentors in his lifetime.

Maxwell once said of mentorship: “The best way a mentor can prepare another leader is to expose him or her to other great people.”

I took his words to heart and dove deep into our catalog so I can introduce you to our very best books on building a mentor relationship no matter which side of the table you want to be on—the mentor or the mentee.

Check out my recommendations below!
