Learn to be an effective mentor
Effective coaching and mentoring doesn’t follow a one-size-fits-all strategy. Each person has different skills, experiences, motivations, and professional and organizational circumstances, so perceptiveness and adaptability are paramount. Additionally, there are best practices for both, whether you’re the one providing the coaching or mentoring, or the one who is receiving it.
To learn about these guidelines as well as common considerations and roadblocks, join Georgia Tech-Savannah Sept. 15 for its latest Learners and Leaders session
