Consider how leadership and mentorship relate and the following quote from Jack Welch:

"Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others."

I can read all I want about leadership, but as a Co GySgt I had a 1st Sgt who was all about showing me the ropes and actually grooming me. He assisted me in getting were I am today.

That's the best way to have it work. Like you said reading can help, but that personal impact is huge.

Lead by example with a firm but fair hand. Encourage. Motivate. Inspire.

To really be an effective mentor, you have to go beyond the teachings of the job, but you have to groom the mind to match. You have to get the individual to adjust fire mentally and see things in a way that could challenge his/her core yet accept them.
