The Power of Everyday Mentoring

Mentor...the word conjures up an image of a seasoned corporate sage conversing with a naive, still “wet behind the ears” young recruit.  But, what is mentoring, really?  A mentor is simply someone who helps someone else learn something important.  It has nothing to do with a mentoring program or rank or level in the organization.  Peers mentor peers.  Mentors are learning coaches…sensitive, trusted advisors.
