Mentoring in a Modern Context

There are some people that are seemingly gifted with natural mentoring abilities however there is an underlying ‘art of mentoring’ that is not an easily obtained capability and is likely a skill that the best mentors are aware that they are ever evolving and mastering.

In different contexts for example their style or approach must shift or adapt to the environment which the best mentors can identify as a relationship becomes further established, moving into new phases of the relationship.
In this webinar, Centre for Mentoring Excellence CEO and leadership expert Lisa Fain draws on mentoring examples from her new book, The Mentor’s Guide, co-authored with her mother, mentoring expert Dr. Lois Zachary.  Lisa is a global speaker, and an expert in the intersection of cultural competency and mentoring. Her passion for diversity and inclusion fuels her strong conviction, that leveraging differences creates a better workplace and drives better business results.
