Dynamic Mentoring
Course Purpose

For centuries, mentors have offered valuable advancement strategies and protection at critical points in a person’s career development. However, the traditional, good-old-boy mentoring approach has changed. Today’s mentors support rather than direct—and stretch rather than protect. The traditional approach made sense several decades ago when most organizations were structured as hierarchies and valued stability, seniority and status quo.

Today’s work environment demands a different approach. Rather than smooth the way to advancement, today’s mentors, empower employees to respond effectively in the context of ongoing events. Although having access to a mentor does not guarantee advancement, having the wise counsel and advice of an experienced colleague can help employees move ahead, learn how to handle various situations and avoid some of the pitfalls that can derail a career or delay a promotion.

This course is very interactive with minimum of lecture. It is based upon industry standards for adult learning methods.
