What is Leadership Mentoring and what/how is this accomplished?
Leadership mentoring enables mentees to see what great leadership looks like, as the mentor is technically leading them; using soft leadership skills to effectively communicate; leadership skills to encourage them and drive them forward; and hard leadership skills to hold them accountable for real progress.

Are leadership and mentorship the same?
Leaders and mentors are similar in that both have followers and both know how to lead others in a positive and encouraging way. The differences are that mentors often become confidants while leaders usually aren't. Mentors also operate based on values while leaders may still be operating based on dollar signs.

What is the difference between management and leadership?
“Management is about persuading people to do things they do not want to do, while leadership is about inspiring people to do things, they never thought they could.”
