MASTERFUL MENTORING: PROMOTING EXCEPTIONAL DEVELOPMENT IN OTHERS

 
Get to the heart of what it takes to develop people so they can conquer more complex roles and create a path toward fulfilling their aspirations. The best mentors go well beyond story-telling and teaching concepts; they excel as masters of development, leveraging the relationship for maximum growth. Learn the deliberate skills used to: create a strong foundation for the relationship; ask thoughtful and courageous questions; widen perspective and increase self-awareness; spur experimentation for growth; and manage unanticipated mentor challenges. Learn about the magic of applying masterful mentor practices using case studies, small group discussion, and tools.
