CEO of the Center for Mentoring Excellence, Lisa Fain teams up with founder, Lois Zachary to present this Soundview Live webinar, based on their new book Bridging Differences for Better Mentoring.
As the workplace has become more diverse, mentoring has become more challenging. Mentors and mentees may come from very different backgrounds and have limited understanding of each other's cultures and outlooks, but mentoring remains the most powerful tool for creating meaningful relationships, furthering professional development, and increasing engagement and retention. In this Soundview Live webinar, Lisa Fain and Lois Zachary illustrate how key mentoring concepts can play out in real life.
What You'll Learn:
- Tools and strategies designed to help you increase your self-awareness.
- How to help mentors develop the level of cultural competency needed to bridge differences.
- How to embrace and leverage differences in your mentoring relationships.
- How to help the mentor and mentee make a genuine connection and learn from each other.
