A Mentor can be defined as a trusted friend, good listener, open to new ideas, understanding, someone who possesses patience, is knowledgeable, and has compassion to perform a simple but vital task linking to a positive experience for members. Goals for the Mentoring for Leadership Program include:
Respect for the Past - Mentoring provides a look back on traditions of the Auxiliary.
Embrace the Present - Mentoring provides the insight to the current practices.
Plan for the Future - Mentoring creates knowledge helpful for leadership skills.
Every member can be a mentor by following these objectives:
* Create future leaders by providing guidance and support to all members.
* Enhance knowledge and educate on topics relaing to the Auxiliary that will compliment all Programs.
* Ensure a positive member experience, embracing the diversity of membership and how valuable every member is with a first and lasting impression.
As we begin a new Auxiliary year, let's all consider new members attending meetings by showing "Respect for the Past" in explaining the "why's" we do things in a certain format, for example - standing, siting, etc. according to the raps of the gavel.
