A vital art
As leaders, coaches and communicators we deal with crises that can increase our levels of stress and add long hours to our days that make work-life integration tough to manage. How do we keep going and sustain our enthusiasm once the honeymoon has worn off?
Drawing on his experiences, amongst others as a parent, a communicator (for the Chief Justices of Nova Scotia) and as a motivational teacher, Dene Rossouw will share four key principles to help us re-align and find meaning and value as communicators.
Whether we feel valued or are vilified for what we do, the media, parents, our organizations and our colleagues rely on the ‘edge’ we bring. Staying fresh and finding our edge is a vital art that needs to be vigorously pursued.
The workplace mix
Today’s workplace is a mix of cultures, generations and perspectives. Mentoring is a powerful professional development and empowerment process that bridges these gaps and creates meaningful engagement and momentum at work.
Mentoring is a developmental partnership. It’s a mutual commitment to bring out the best in the other person. It calls forth new possibilities through the flow of meaning in relationship based on mutual respect and trust.
A Possible Future
Both the mentor and the mentee lean towards a possible instead of a predictable future – the mentor shares knowledge, skills and perspective to foster the personal and professional growth of the mentee, and the mentee takes full ownership of the opportunity and drives the process to a successful outcome.
