National Mentoring Month and Goal Setting Month

January is National Mentoring Month—a month to share your knowledge and experience with someone just starting out in their career journey. To recognize Universal Human Rights Month, OFF THE SHELF is featuring a bookshelf of resources that offer some tips and techniques to help you hone your mentoring techniques.

And in lieu of New Year's resolutions this year, why not set some goals for yourself instead? January is Goal Setting Month, after all. Not sure how to get started? OFF THE SHELF has you covered. In our Goal Setting bookshelf, you'll find some resources to help you identify your goals, stay on track, and achieve what you set out to accomplish.

OFF THE SHELF PICK OF THE month

Additionally, the OFF THE SHELF pick of the month for January is Beyond Collaboration Overload: How to Work Smarter, Get Ahead, and Restore Your Well-Being by Rob Cross | Ascent Audio, © 2021.

Collaboration, that seemingly Good Thing all companies encourage, is creating an epidemic of overload and burnout. It crushes our vitality and well-being, prevents us from being innovative, and blocks our companies from being the most successful organizations they could be. Beyond Collaboration Overload will show you the practices that the best collaborators prevent overload from derailing their careers and, often, their lives.

Be sure to visit OFF THE SHELF to leverage the accompanying discussion questions for your next book club event.
