JVDU is gaining a lot of traction and its getting me really excited. Professional development is important to your career and it is important to strengthening the J.V. Driver team. It is interesting how you can tie things like this back to Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. In this case it is a Win-Win or Habit #4 and Sharpening Your Saw Habit #7 for those of you that have read Steven Covey’s book or taken the course.
One initiative that has been on my wish list for some time is the mentorship program. Mentors can help provide guidance and coaching. They can be a sounding board, a resource for information or help direct you to other sources of information for dealing with today’s issues. They can also provide advice and counsel on your career development.
I encourage those interested in being either a mentor and/or a mentee to get involved with these types of programs.
