Who Needs Mentoring ?
- Alan Howard
A forum to explore mentoring and its usefulness in today’s rapidly changing business environment.
An opportunity to explore just what mentoring is and what it can do for you. Not only in your professional life but in your private life too!
Questions such as do I need a mentor? It’s not a weakness to ask for help. In fact it is a sign of strength to recognise the opportunity to grow
Would it benefit me to seek a mentor and how will it benefit me in my career?
Should you think about becoming a mentor to help others, and are there benefits I will gain as a mentor, do you have skill(s) and knowledge that could be useful to others?
As mentee, receiving , and as a mentor, giving, the importance of an open mind and the willingness to learn are of great importance and will aid your personal and professional growth.
All this and more will become clear and possibly change your mind about mentoring. Both as a mentee and as a mentor, two sides of the same coin.
And lastly the opportunity to ask those questions that you always wanted to ask!
