Mentoring when the stakes are high
Workplace mentoring is a hot topic right now and for good reason.
When a leader uses effective coaching and mentoring strategies with team members, it can show that you trust them, help them to learn and grow a sense of autonomy.  In fact, studies have shown that a mentoring approach can lead to higher levels of job satisfaction, engagement and loyalty.
Mentoring when the stakes are high
Instead of just giving the answer… a leader can ask a good question to draw the solution out of the team member.  This often times helps them to think more effectively and navigate more challenges on their own in the future.
    • What do you do when they’re working with that really important client?
    • What do you do when they’re managing that critical roll out?
    • What do you do when that project absolutely positively has to be done on time?

The question is…

Can you still mentor in higher risk situations?
