Mentors are indispensable contributors to our growth and development. Being a mentor is indispensable to your leadership growth and development too.
Mentoring is the act of helping people learn. In addition to sharing your knowledge and experience, mentoring offers the opportunity to practice skills such as providing feedback, bridging difference in relationship, and developing your coaching skills including asking questions, offering perspectives and helping problem solve. You can also gain valuable feedback on your performance.
