Learn the deliberate skills used to: create a strong foundation for the relationship; ask thoughtful and courageous questions; widen perspective and increase self-awareness; spur experimentation for growth; and manage unanticipated mentor challenges. Learn about the magic of applying masterful mentor practices using case studies, small group discussion, and tools.
