EP032: Encore Presentation — Mentoring Relationships as a Tool for Leader Development


**  Encore Presentation of EP009 — “Mentoring Relationships as a Tool for Leader Development”
This week the Leaders Huddle interviews Lieutenant Colonel Raymond Kimball, Director of West Point’s Center for the Advancement of Leader Development and Organizational Learning. LTC Kimball holds an EdD in Learning Technologies from Pepperdine University and his research on online communities of practice and Army mentoring formed the basis for his book, The Army Officer’s Guide to Mentoring. LTC Kimball walks us through the importance of mentoring, and the obligation we have as leaders to develop members of the profession. We discuss the differences between mentoring, coaching, and counselling, and why developing others must be a greater priority for future leaders. Finally, revisiting a topic from our last podcast, we ask LTC Kimball about his thoughts on the benefits and potential challenges related to e-mentoring.
