Prositions, Inc., creator of MentorString, the leading virtual mentoring software platform, announced today that internationally recognized trainer, speaker, and author, Dr. Lois J. Zachary, has joined the company’s Strategic Advisory Board.

“Lois is the most published thought leader in our industry,” said Frank Russell, CEO of Prositions. “Her books, articles and training programs on mentoring skills have set the standard for mentor training. Having her as a part of our Strategic Advisory Board is an incredible coup and her participation will greatly enhance our ability to provide cutting edge solutions in the market.”

Dr. Zachary is president of Leadership Development Services, LLC, and Director of its Center for Mentoring Excellence. Her innovative mentoring approaches and expertise in coaching leaders and their organizations in designing, implementing and evaluating learner-centered mentoring programs have been used globally by a wide array of Fortune 500 companies, government agencies and educational institutions.

“I am very excited and honored to be a part of Prositions Advisory Board,” said Dr. Lois Zachary. “Their latest software product, MentorString, is revolutionizing the way organizations build and deploy mentoring programs.”

Lois Zachary’s first book on mentoring, The Mentor’s Guide, first published in 2000, became the primary resource for organizations interested in promoting mentoring for leadership and for mentors seeking to deepen their mentoring practice. With her best-selling books Creating a Mentoring Culture (2005), The Mentee’s Guide (2009), the 2012 revision of The Mentor’s Guide, five new Mentoring Excellence Pocket Toolkits and more than 100 published articles, Dr. Zachary has created a comprehensive set of resources on mentoring skills and practices. Her most recently published book is Starting Strong: A Mentoring Fable, (2014) which she wrote with her colleague, Lory Fischler.

“We have also partnered with Dr. Zachary in the development of a 16-module video series called Make Mentoring Count,” said Robin Salsberry, President and COO of Prositions. “This new development program for mentors will be released at the upcoming Association for Training and Development (ATD) show later this month in Orlando. When this new content is integrated with our software platform, MentorString, it delivers a robust solution for mentors that is unmatched in our industry.”
