The workshop led by Naily Makangu on 16th October 2018, led us through a series of questions one should ask him/herself when undertaking changes in ones’ career. The leitmotif has been: How much are you prepared to pay, How much are you prepared to invest in yourself to get the career you want? How much are you prepared to invest to diversify your skill set in order to get to where you want to be?
“Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.”
