How do you define mentoring and what steps do you take to ensure it is a priority and just part of your job duties?
I personally work to ensure that mentorship is a priority and just part of my job duties by intentionally centering a genuine investment in the growth, development and success of each of my team members as a core and driving management principle that guides my own day-to-day practice and approach to leading my team and organization.
What advice can you share to help impact not only the younger generation but also the women who are trying to grow in their careers and create positive change?
My best advice is to focus on being the best and most authentic “you” as possible and let everything in your leadership flow from that space of personal awareness, acknowledgment, confidence and understanding. Take time to learn your divinely appointed gifts, passions and purpose, and consistently take time to hone and nurture them. Focus on how your gifts can serve others and benefit the world.
