The Truth on Mentoring

"Everyone pretends to like 'mentoring.'  Few really get the time and passion needed to do it right.  Follow these steps to make sure you can really mentor someone properly.  1.  Know what you know and don't know; 2.  Make sure you are consciously competent at the skill you are coaching on; 3.  Set up the process for follow up; 4.  Use all the tools available: personal coaching, phone calls, Skype or Face Time and email.   Remember, a mentor should help expand a persons perspective and improve their potential." -Cindy Novotny montor
