Benefits of Mentorship: Meet the Experts
January is National Mentorship Month and Red Sky is excited to honor this important relationship with our roundtable discussion. Leveraging experience and knowledge to empower peers through mentorship is an extremely rewarding experience for both the mentor and mentee. Creating a learning and development partnership helps you gain proficiency, gather career guidance, role modeling, and communication skills to benefit your career in the long run.
Working with the right mentor can lead to improved confidence and reduced stress, while often resulting in a promotion, helping provide tips to work through a professional setback, or just provide general guidance. Join Red Sky and experts including Denise Evans, Sarah Haggard, and Sharon Reynolds to learn the top tips and tricks on how to build a meaningful mentoring relationship to take your career to the next level.
