Do you enjoy helping others? Do you have the time, energy, and desire to take on a new challenge? Are you highly experienced or skilled in your field? If you answered “Yes,” to all of these questions, then you may be a good candidate for mentoring.
Mentoring is an excellent development opportunity. While mentees benefit from the advice, guidance, and encouragement of someone more skilled, you get to develop coaching skills, increase your influence, and gain a sense of personal satisfaction from taking a protégé under your wing.
In this course, you’ll find a complete guide to mentoring others. That includes learning who a mentor is and what they do, qualities to look for in an ideal mentee, how to lead productive mentoring sessions, and the do’s and don’ts of becoming an effective mentor. You’ll also learn five common challenges in a mentoring relationship along with strategies to overcome each.
