How to Find the Right Mentor

The New York Times ran a great article over the holiday season regarding some practical tips about what mentoring is and to finding the right mentor. You can view the article "Finding the Right Mentor Can Bolster A Career" here.

As we are seeing on both sides of the border, mentoring is increasingly being turned to by individuals and organizations alike, as a cost-effective and impactful way to build capacity, networks and knowledge.

If you are in the Toronto area later this month I hope that you will join me at the HRPA 2010 Conference as I speak on Mentoring: An Essential Ingredient for Any Talent Management Strategy. I will be presenting on Thursday January 28th at 3 pm, follewed by my book signing on Effective Group Coaching (Wiley, 2010) at 4:30 pm. My presentation will include practical tips for designing and implementing your own mentoring strategy and program internally.

I know that many of my corporate clients across industries and sectors have added, or are considering adding, mentoring into their learning, succession planning or leadership development approaches and programs.

What role can mentoring play in boosting your organizational capacity this year?

Have a terrific week!

Warm regards,

Thank you for sharing the information. Finding the right mentor can be very hard sometimes. Online business mentors are important when building an internet business.
