This is a true crash course in mentorship for both mentors, mentees and anyone who feels like they are not ready to be either. Everyone is qualified to be a mentor and a mentee! With the never-ending need for new security talent and a rotation of new people on to your team learning to be a mentor and a mentee is a critical skill in the workplace today. You will learn what types of mentorship people are really in need of, how you can identify the right mentor or mentee, the difference between coaching and mentoring along with how to get the most out of the mentorship and how to kick start a program for your organization. Most of all you will learn how mentorships can help all of us grow; raising the skills in the security industry as a result.
