Practical Ideas for Great Leaders

Presentation by Dr. Jane Bluestein

If you are fortunate enough to be a mentor, whether to a colleague, a trainee, a newcomer to your field, or a child in your life, there are certain beliefs and behaviors that will make you more effective in your role.

Practical suggestions for encouraging, inspiring, envisioning, guiding, accepting, facilitating, maintaining standards and values, expanding current reality, supporting and, when necessary, detaching and letting go—skills appropriate for educators, administrators, parents, counselors, support staff, community members, employers, and anyone who works in a leadership capacity.

Includes tips for what to look for in a great mentor, and how to know when you’ve got a bad one.
