Presenter: Amanda Mewborn, executive director of project management, Piedmont Healthcare - Atlanta

As we progress in our careers, it can be difficult to find mentors. In addition, great leaders who would make great mentors for us are often too busy to mentor the people who request their mentorship.

While there are many great formal mentorship programs, through our employers, alumni networks, and professional societies, one mentorship opportunity is not being fully utilized: self-mentoring. There are four components to self-mentoring which will be reviewed as opportunities to take charge of your professional growth.
