One of the subtle elements of leadership is mentoring. Not only do all leaders need to find their own—men and women who inspire them, hold them accountable, challenge them—but they need to be mentors themselves. And perhaps most importantly, leaders need to tackle the challenge to create a culture to nurture mentoring from top to bottom. In this session, we’ll discuss the definition of mentoring and why it can drive amazing transformation within your business.

  • Find a Mentor: What does a mentor do, and how do you go about finding (and approaching) one?
  • Be a Mentor: What you need to consider before agreeing to mentor, and your responsibilities
  • Create Mentors: How do you foster mentorship within your team, and encourage them to take those skills into the community
  • Ladies only: Mentor through the challenge of strong female leadership
