Importance of adult/mentor training

We must start with ourselves...you, not them, remember?

I came across this excerpt of a talk as I started my word study on leadership this morning:
Four years ago the presiding brethren launched a leadership training program. It began with the General Authorities themselves, in a school-of-the-prophets meeting each Wednesday in the Church Administration Building. They taught themselves in the leadership skills of Jesus and his prophets. From this modern school of the prophets came outlines and source materials for leadership training... (Wendell J. Ashton Conference 4/17)
We must go back to the basic principles as mentors, continually practicing what we want to preach in the years to come.  A mentor is simply someone who is at least one step ahead on the path that the student desires to be on!

We can do this through:
-Summer training of mentors
-Annual Parent Training Mentor meeting
-Monthly Mentor meetings
