Tools, illustrations, and practical real-world stories depicting how to achieve a stunningly effective career mentoring relationship.

In this practical guide for career success, you will discover how to:

  • cultivate networking skills to identify and recruit the right mentor for you,
  • establish regular check-ins with realistic agendas, objectives, and action planning, and
  • utilize a Career Movement Roadmap to clarify your direction and destination.

Our career satisfaction is ultimately up to us, but that doesn't mean we have to go it alone. In fact, few people who are truly successful will say that they have. What is the role of mentee or “protégé”—at any stage of your career? How does one recruit a mentor who is both interested and the right fit? As mentors, how do we foster the most worthy and fruitful arrangements?

"Mentorship is magic, and that is made powerfully clear in 
Protégé Power. If you want to add Miracle-Gro® to your career, you need this book."Joe Schmit, sports director of KSTP-TV, Minnesota Speakers Hall of Fame, author of Silent Impact and The Impact Blueprint

In Lori Crever’s multinational corporate career, she constructed and led the most celebrated and replicated mentor program across the enterprise. Eighty-eight percent of program graduates reported they experienced a notable surge in role level, job title, and/or salary. These positive shifts were attributed to having the right mentor and skillful program support. The methods Lori developed have proven effective for mentors and mentees alike.

With the motivational tones of 
She Thinks like a Boss and the relationship-first approach of How to Talk to Anybody, Lori Crever provides an engaging and practical roadmap for business mentorship, on both sides of the coin.

Whether you’re searching for a college graduation gift, considering a career change, or trying to elevate your professional success, having a mentor takes you from struggling with a paper roadmap to utilizing a sophisticated GPS. While you remain the driver of your career vehicle, working with a mentor ensures that you smartly comprehend and skillfully address obstacles that may get in the way of arriving at your career destination.

It's time you found your co-pilot.
