Mentor Training Call #1: You and Your Operation as Mentor

Mentoring is different from being an employer in several essential ways. For each of us, some of these already are natural for us while others will be a stretch; determining our incoming strengths and stretches is essential to choosing the right apprentice. Creating an accurate apprenticeship description that is both appealing and realistic about the ups and downs of regenerative agriculture is the other foundation to an effective and enjoyable mentoring experience. We’ll discuss mentoring skills to hone, and share ways to describe work schedules, location, isolation, and other factors, to be sure your description will appeal to the applicants you most want to attract.
