Solving the Mystery of Mentoring: You CAN Be a Mentor! with Linda Bruno

September 19 @ 2:00 pm CDT 3:30 pm CDT

Register for live webinar or recording

Often, when we hear or read about mentoring or coaching, the two terms are used interchangeably. In fact, we can find definitions of each word that are similar to definitions of the other word. So we won’t debate which term should be used when. Instead, we’ll look at qualities that can help you be a successful mentor – mentoring magic, if you will 😊.

We’ll talk about who guides a mentoring process, what some of the key attributes of great mentors might be, and how we can become more like those who seem to come by mentoring naturally.

In the library world, there are numerous opportunities to mentor others – perhaps within your own organization. Attend this webinar and see why mentoring may be a great fit for you – and how you can grow your mentoring muscle in the process.

Linda Bruno has been developing and conducting training workshops for libraries for more than fifteen years. Her favorite thing to do is to help people become their best selves! That’s why she offers workshops on topics ranging from Leadership Skills to Emotional Intelligence – and lots of areas in between.

PLAN webinars are free for all Florida library staff and volunteers.
