Recent good news is that my masters thesis was published as an academic text just before Xmas 2010.
It's entitled Mentoring and Self-directed Learning: Issues of Leadership, Power and Ethics and is available here
Needless to say, I think it's a fantastic piece of work! But check it out for yourself. It looks at the mentoring relationship, and analyses how leadership, power and ethics can influence the learning outcomes for the client. It also makes recommendations as to how the learning outcomes can be enhanced.
