5 Tips with Josep Solans (CCC ‘09, Pensando el Liderazgo ‘99)

Mentoring is a growth process that helps people develop their potential. While mentors serve to inspire and encourage their mentees throughout the process, the mentees are responsible for their own personal and professional development.

Josep Solans has extensive experience in mentoring processes. He is currently a founding partner at Mentoring de Carrera Profesional, where he guides organisations in the creation and development of good governance processes. Integrating people so that their profiles are fully aligned with those of the position they occupy is an essential component of this guidance. Josep also provides individual guidance to professionals seeking to develop their careers, focusing in particular on updating profiles, professional reorientation and career coaching.
