Mentors Help Us Stretch Our Awareness

Fire leaders are committed to building a high level of competence in team members. Their satisfaction depends on it as does the future of the organization. Some of today’s team members are the leaders of tomorrow; it is the leader’s responsibility to mentor and help them cultivate the right tools and skills that they will need to face the challenges of the future. ~ Leading in the Wildland Fire Service
"Leaders also help their people grow by mentoring and sharing experiences. Mentoring them begins their journey from followership to leadership. Fire leaders coach and then step back to allow people to take on new responsibilities.

Providing the opportunity to test new waters and try new behaviors is important in developing people for the future."

In this video, Jon Young speaks about mentoring and awareness. Humans are interconnected. How do you stretch and mentor your subordinates.
