Yes, You Do Have Time To Mentor--Here's How To Make The Most Of It

Yes, You Do Have Time To Mentor--Here's How To Make The Most Of It | Strategy and Leadership | Scoop.it
Mentoring is a way to be smart about investing in your future. Here's how to fit it into your busy life.
Chad Manske's insight:

Mentoring is a HIGHLY under-utilized and under-valued skill in my profession.  This past Tuesday I spent 2 hours with 16 of our best and brightest officers on the Joint Staff who will be this summer's crop of Group, Vice Wing and Wing Commanders throughout the Air Force.  As a former commander at those levels myself, I gained valuable experience and insight--both good and bad--I feel obligated to share with those who might benefit.  And it really doesn't take all that much time, but it does require you to make a deliberate effort to capture, record and reflect to turn those insights into useful mentoring advice and application.
