Presenter: Randy Emelo, Founder, CoreConnection
Description: As a recent survey from Olivet Nazareth University points out, over 75% of people think that mentors are important for success, but only 37% have one. That so many believe that mentors are critical to success is not surprising. What is a bit of an eye-opener is that so few have a mentor.
Mentors provide the guidance, support, experience, and wisdom that is often the key ingredient for career success. Mentors are all around us and readily available. Often all we need is a better understanding of how mentoring works to be able to take those critical first steps in establishing effective mentoring relationships.
This course will demystify the mentoring process and provide the understanding and tools necessary to find your mentor.
The learning objectives for this course are designed to provide participants with the knowledge and skills needed to apply mentoring concepts and principles. After this course, participants will:
- Understand the benefits of mentoring relationships
- Understand the roles and responsibilities of mentees and mentors

- Understand the mentoring lifecycle
- Understand trust-building in mentoring relationships
- Assess your mentoring network
