Scores of people have written to ask how my Mentoring Group works. I thought I’d write about it in the hope that you might be inspired to start your own group.
So much of the activity I see among leaders today is focused on reaching the masses. “Successful leaders” speak at big conferences, host popular television or radio shows, publish bestselling books, or write successful blogs.
