NEW DIRECTIONS FOR STUDENT LEADERSHIP, no. 158, Summer 2018 © 2018 Wiley Periodicals, Inc. Published online in Wiley Online Library ( • DOI: 10.1002/yd.20283


This volume is designed to guide leadership educators and institutional leaders who are looking to cultivate strong student outcomes in leadership learning through the increased involvement of adults and peers. The goal of this volume is to explore diverse types of relationships (mentoring, coaching, advising), the focus of these relationships (i.e., short-term or long-term, personal development, or leadership behavior modification), and the unique leadership development outcomes expected from these diverse relationships. Mentoring, coaching, and advising are often confused as similar developmental tools, yet their scope, purpose, and utility in leadership development are distinct. This volume will provide the guidance and perspectives to adequately assess when mentoring, coaching, and/or advising will be the most powerful leadership development tool.
