The world is a different place each day. We ask our academics and researchers for opinion on breaking news and challenging developments that are set to throw accepted educational norms into question. Often this is challenging to academic leaders to think about both sides of the argument. This book has some insights on leadership and mentoring that our lecturers and practitioners have created drawing upon expertise from their research and the industry. Mentoring is the process where an experienced person provides guidance, encouragement and support to a less experienced person. Relationship is based on consideration, commonality, camaraderie, and confidentiality. The mentee and mentor works out the details and decide how much time and energy they are willing to invest in the relationship. Medical universities address this, by formalizing the process and assigning mentors for residents and junior faculty, although it is up to the mentees to find someone they respect and trust to help them reach their objectives. Both formal and informal mentoring are effective. Many have more than 1 mentor at a time like staff physicians, peers, relatives, or family friends.
