Leadership is something that we need in our personal/family life, community and in the workplace. Research has identified that there is a leadership talent shortage that is impacting organizations globally.
This is a must-attend webinar as we discuss the impact of this leadership talent shortage and how effective mentoring can help in addressing this problem.
Mentoring is something that can and must be part of our daily life. Whether we mentor at home, in the community or in the workplace research has clearly shown the benefits of effective mentoring.
A paradigm shift is taking place in mentoring with the move from the traditional model to a more modern – effective mentoring process. We will explore the transferable skills that mentoring can provide us and how that will impact us on a personal and professional level.
In a study done by “Art of Mentoring” in 2017, the participants indicated that they saw a 63% increase in productivity where mentoring was involved. This can and will have a huge impact on leadership within an organization and the development of future leaders. The study went on to state that 54% of the participants experienced a higher engagement level with the organization.
