Coaching and Mentoring in Organizations --- This class has two key objectives (1) to understand two approaches for developing others, mentoring and coaching, and how to integrate these effectively, (2) to practice the art of mentoring and coaching and learn from the experience, in order to become more effective leaders, 3) to gain insight into the purpose of mentoring and coaching in organizations, and understand how to apply this in the business/professional world. Students will be exposed to key ideas regarding developing others and then will choose someone in their personal or professional networks to coach and mentor. This action learning-project will culminate in a written team report on best practices in developing others. Students will also keep a journal on their personal journey through coaching and mentoring.
