Mentoring skills will be important as this new generation of leaders take the stage and shifts to an organizational culture that is more collaborative and inclusive than their predecessors.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) October 09, 2015
Just four years ago this month, academics and leading professionals in the water industry concurred that more needed to be done to prepare their young professionals for success in business. Skills related to leadership, communication, management, finance and government needed to be brought to the forefront and prioritized just like technical subjects. The result is the textbook The Effective Water Professional, and new and emerging professionals will benefit from the practical application this book will contribute to the workplace.
Sal Silvester, one of 20 professionals tapped to provide content for this book, contributed a section in the management chapter specific to mentoring people. Sal, a consultant, published author and thought leader in leadership skill development, dives deep into the whys and hows of mentoring people through a continuous goal setting and feedback process.
"Within the next five years, the water industry will face the reality of half their workforce coming to retirement age," says Sal Silvester. "Mentoring skills will be important as this new generation of leaders take the stage and shifts to an organizational culture that is more collaborative and inclusive than their predecessors."
