Do You Need A "MENTOR"?
Have you ever wondered if you need a mentor to help you grow in your business or organization? To get an answer to that question, attend the August RUTHERFORD Cable meeting.
Rebecca Climer says the term "mentor" has evolved from being a noun, typically used to describe a more experienced professional guiding a younger protégée, to a verb that today describes an action that is dynamic, intentional and beneficial to both the mentor and the mentee.
She noted, "When people are entering the workforce for the first time, looking to change or enhance their careers, or simply wanting to master a new skill, the mentoring relationship can be key to achieving short-term and long-term goals."
In her presentation, Climer will discuss how the mentoring role has evolved over time, the benefits of the mentoring relationship to both mentor and mentee, roles and responsibilities of both and steps to establish and maintain a positive relationship, the difference between a mentor and a coach, and mentoring both in and out of the work environment.
Rebecca concluded, "I want people to come away from our morning together and be able to successfully articulate whether or not they believe they need a mentor or would like to be a mentor."
