“A coach has some great questions for your answers; a mentor has some great answers for your questions.” -Unknown

Reflection. Intentionality. Reciprocal Learning. Impact. We have all had that special person in our lives who helped to guide and shape us into our best-self. Typically this person was there to listen, advise and motivate. As we know, there is a great demand in the workplace for immediate results, and mentoring can be the key to success. Choosing to work with a mentor coach will often bring the discipline needed to set goals, monitor progress, and stay focused on results that one might not be able to do on his or her own. At the core of mentoring is the belief that individuals can and will succeed when provided the proper supports.

MASSP has designed a training for mentor coaches that prepares participants to provide mentoring and coaching to individuals within our schools regardless of expertise. You can be that person!
