Mentoring as a Key Driver of Success in Leading Organizations

Mentoring is one of the core practices of leading-edge companies. They utilize it to invest in strategic relationships, knowledge transfer, collaboration and sustained improvements.  They don’t all ‘do’ Mentoring the same way.  However, they all build Mentoring into their culture and core disciplines.  In this brief overview session, you will learn:

  • How Mentoring Differs from Coaching, Managing or Training
  • Current Mentoring Practices in Organizations – the Do’s & Don’ts
  • Mentoring Essentials – What All Successful Mentors Say & Do
  • How Different Generations in the Workplace Respond to Mentoring (Millennials, Gen X-ers, Boomers and Zoomers)
  • How to Get Started with Mentoring – Creating a Culture instead of a Program
