Why Your Emerging Leaders Need Mentors
Athletes, entrepreneurs, politicians and business icons routinely attribute their success to mentors.
As the global shortage of talent grows, recruiting, developing, and retaining high potential talent tops the list of challenges for senior management. While salary and benefits are important, emerging leaders, especially Millennials, often prioritize personal growth and purpose over compensation.
Unfortunately, standalone instructor-led training and eLearning often under-deliver on developing the soft skills that become critical as leadership responsibilities grow.
Mentorship, an oft-overlooked and relatively inexpensive tool, can deliver great results for all involved – protégés, mentors and organizations alike.
This paper outlines how mentoring can play a key role in the engagement and development of emerging leaders, including:
- Why developing top talent is more critical than ever.
