Mentoring skills

Mentoring can play a key role in developing one's career. Managers who have achieved career success need to counsel and guide others for the purpose of helping them achieve similar success. The best mentors combine technical competence, experience, the ability to communicate, and most importantly the ability to listen.  Managers have the responsibility to discuss and advise staff members on aspects of their work and professional long term development.
