What you will learn:
Every manager aspires to lead a high-performing team and effectively guide the individuals that comprise it. But how can you be a truly great manager without understanding how to be a great mentor? And how can you become the most successful mentor possible without learning from those who have reached the apex of success? After interviewing hundreds of America’s top leaders - from Fortune 500 CEOs to founders of household name companies to four-star generals and admirals - and gathering best practices, fresh tips, and inspiring anecdotes on how to cultivate and optimize mentor-mentee relationships, a playbook now exists for anyone interested in understanding the ins and outs of mentorship. But what plays are essential for managers to call? And how can they call them?
In this perspective-shifting Elective, employees will learn:
• Why the best leaders are also the best mentors
• The little-known but integral principles essential to mentorship
• How to not only become a great mentor but also find a great mentor
After this Elective, employees will have a clear understanding of the core principles of effective leadership, the core principles of effective mentorship, and how to leverage the power of mentorship to thrive as a manager.
