This is a case study of an approach that provides a framework for the development of mentoring relationships. Because of diverse ideas of what mentoring is and the aversion of many to add another expectation and responsibility to their task list, many are unwilling to take on the title "mentor". However, when presented with the fact that most mentoring occurs informally and is a normal part of many interactions we have with others, mentoring can be seen as much less of a burden.
Those seeking mentors often do not know where to find willing candidates, especially those outside their supervisory chain or immediate work area. How does a person find a mentor?
Come learn about one approach that is showing great promise!
In the Monthly Learning Meeting you will learn how to:
- Identify solutions to obstacles that hamper mentoring
- Adapt an approach to increase mentoring in your organization
