"Mentoring and Coaching in IT" Are they relevant in today's "virtual" fast-paced environment?

In today's information technology environment is finding or being a good mentor and coaching our staff still relevant? Why are these soft skills important to becoming a well-rounded employee or leader? With more people working from home or in a remote office than ever before how do we coach our staff, and how do we find good mentors? This session will look at mentoring and coaching, the differences between the two and why soft skills that we gain from having a good mentor are still relevant today.

I'm an IT professional with 35 plus years of experience - especially related to systems integration and project management, networking, data center technologies and IT security. I enjoy working with people and solving their problems and creating productive relationships that benefit everyone. For the past 11 years I have been the technical services manager at Samaritan Medical Center.
