Mentoring Others

One of the perks of being older, particularly in the setting of the emergency department, is recognizing the strengths of your peers and encouraging their development.

Often, we don’t fully recognize these qualities in ourselves – and this is precisely why mentoring is so important. It doesn’t have to be a formal arrangement, but it does mean paying attention to your colleague’s qualities and encouraging them.

Sometimes what may seem to be insignificant encouragement can change the course of someones life.
