Fostering Talent: Mentorship, Peer Reviews and Going Beyond Your Job Description


“Undertake continual professional development, mentor new or younger employees and learn and implement new skills beyond your primary role.”

This is a sentence that few, or more likely none of us will find in our job descriptions. This talk seeks to impress the importance of developing not only yourself, but others, as a primary part of your job.

What incentive have we to remain in the same role or company if we are unable to learn and use new skills? Why develop new competencies if we have no opportunity to pass them onto the next generation? Why make ourselves vulnerable when we can remain in our quiet, safe silos?
