The secret of Mentoring in a nutshell
I was reading "A PASSION FOR EXCELLENCE" BY Author Tom Peters the other evening. I came across a passage that I thought that had a direct application to the Mentoring or coaching of the new Masonic Brother.
"Coaching is face to face leadership that pulls together
people with diverse backgrounds, talents,experiences and interests,encourages them to step up to be responsible and continued achievement, and treats them as full scale partners and contributors. Coaching is not about memorizing techniques or devising the perfect game plan. It is really paying attention to people-
really believing them, really caring about them, really involving them"......
I think our goal is to guide them to their own success....
Mentoring our Brothers who succeed and live the Masonic life is our legacy...Dont you think?
