Mentoring Minute with EDCN Leaders
Along with work experience, nothing is more important than excellent mentoring. Excellence means someone who can provide you with coaching, honest feedback, and professional development and career advice; someone with whom you have a genuine trusting relationship, who empathizes with you. Ideally, we bring our whole selves to work, to our careers – so it’s best to have a mentor who “gets you.”

“Jump on opportunities when people make them available to you. Sometime others can see your capabilities before you realize you have them.”

“Diversity generates innovation, it produces inclusion, and it fosters a culture of authenticity. It compels us to remain genuine, challenges us to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, promotes varying perspectives and ideas and allows everyone to have a voice. I encourage you to celebrate your differences and to inspire others to do the same.”

“Your individuality empowers you, set a tone that confirms your purpose is the difference that makes a difference.”
