Mentors also have the satisfaction of knowing that they’ve played a key role in developing others and helping them achieve their goals and ambitions.

I’m Dr. Janine Brooks and I will be your guide for this stream.

We’ll be looking at the benefits of mentoring to team and individual development; establishing the mentoring relationship within an ethical framework; self-awareness and self-management in the mentoring relationship.
