Mentorship Needs To Be Incorporated Into Military Education

In an editorial for Army Magazine, retired Army officers Col. Thomas P. Galvin and Col. Charles D. Allen discuss ways of improving the service’s counseling, coaching, and mentoring programs.

“Being a leader and being a coach or mentor, however, require vastly different skills,” they write. “We propose a three-step process: building a cadre of certified coaches, allocating appropriate time in professional military education curricula and instituting standards similar to those used in the executive coaching industry.”
