Ensuring Legacy, High-Performance Teams, and Organizational Efficiency Through Mentoring
Speaker: Peter Saddington - MDiv, CST

Ensuring Legacy, High-Performance Teams, and Organizational Efficiency Through Mentoring
Did you know that over half of Nobel Prize winners were apprenticed by other Nobel laureates? To grow companies and teams to performance you have to take servant leadership to it's logical conclusion: Intentionally mentoring and growing others. This is a time-tested and practiced art. As a volunteer life coach and marriage counselor and Organizational Consultant, I'm passionate about this art and would love to share with you how to take your teams to the next level of performance. Let it be known, this is a long, tough road, but the benefits are worth more than their weight in gold. Let's talk about mentoring and how to get started, the 6 areas of a mentor relationship and 6 tips for mentors.
