MGT 460 Ashford University Skill Set & Mentoring and Coaching Discussion
Week 2 – Discussion 1
Discuss an instance when you identified a weakness in the skill set in an employee (or in yourself ). Consider learning opportunities that may be freely available, if you had limited financial resources, where would you look for training to close the gap on these skill sets? How would the success of the training be measured? Cite your sources appropriately to include the textbook.
Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts with constructive ideas, comments, or suggestions.
Week 2 – Discussion 2
In the “Nurturing Leadership” video, Dr. Warren Bennis stated, “Terrific organizations led by outstanding leaders have leadership at every single level of the organization. They put a value on mentoring and coaching.” Using the textbook and an additional peer-reviewed resource, compare and contrast the concepts of coach and mentor. Is one better suited for a particular situation than the other? What is your experience with coaching and mentoring?
