In her second book,The Missing Mentor: Women Advising Women on Power, Progress and Priorities (ISBN 0-9772730-9-1 Mary Stutts offers mentoring advice and direction on how women can make career and life choices even if they lack access to a formal mentoring program.
“I wrote the book based on research that found being mentored is the #1 experience conducive to general managerial learning. The research also suggests that an imbalance exists between male and female managerial experiences that help develop strategic thinking capabilities.”
The Missing Mentor offers women the advice they need in order to chart a career path, make work-life choices and achieve the career advancement they crave.
Through chapters such as “Confidence is Power,” “Becoming a Life Long Learner” “How to Avoid Getting Derailed”, “Work-Life Choices” and “Orchestrating Transitions,” Stutts shows her readers how to evaluate opportunities, make the most out of the chances they are given and to recognize potential in their personal and professional lives.
