Many times, team members feel like they can't mentor others unless they are a manager or a team lead. However, mentoring allows for growth of both senior team members and junior team members. Mentors and mentees help each other see how the other can improve, mentors can help generate ideas, and mentors can provide the balance of encouragement and "tough love." Both parties feeling empowered can benefit the cohesion of a team and generate new processes and ideas to help support the team and the business.
In this session, we'll discuss:
- Why mentoring others is important
- What each party gets out of mentoring
- The recommended frequency of mentoring sessions
- What to discuss during mentoring sessions
