Mentoring for Growth
by Gio Lester
Mentoring is an important tool for those starting in a profession, considering a change in their career, or those who are stuck in a slump of any sort. Mentoring is a type of coaching mostly directed by the individual who is being mentored. Therefore, it is your questions and your insights that will guide the process. Translation: it is a two-way street that demands your active participation. Mentors need to know how to listen, how to elicit questions that will help guide their mentees, have the required information at hand, easy to find and share.

About the Presenter
Giovanna (Gio) Lester has been a mentor for both the American Translators Association and Abrates, the Brazilian ATA counterpart. Those she had the honor and pleasure of guiding have gone on to make professional and career changes, strengthening their resolve and/or skills, helping them identify and seek extra training. Some of her mentees have gone on to become workshop leaders, create and implement career growth paths, change their specializations, discover new interests. While president of two Florida ATA Chapters, Gio was involved in providing training through workshops she led and bringing outside speakers. Gauging membership interest, market needs and desired subjects became a natural process that lead to identifying solutions and possible professional shifts.
