Historical Mentoring: Engaging the Wisdom and Experience of Leaders from History
Steve Moore, President and CEO, The Mission Exchange
January 17, 2008

It has been said that experience is the best teacher but if you can learn any other way, do it. Leaders need to practice vicarious learning for at least two important reasons. First, you don’t have enough time to make all the mistakes you need to make to learn what you need to learn. Second, some mistakes are too costly to learn from personal experience. One of the most powerful forms of vicarious learning is historical mentoring, which enables us to benefit from the life experience of great leaders who have gone before us through the careful and intentional study of their lives. This webinar will provide you with a practical model for historical mentoring that will enable you to apply the leadership mandate of Hebrews 13:8, Remember your leaders, consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.

Steve Moore is President and CEO of The Mission Exchange. He has worked extensively with missionaries in more than 40 countries through short-term outreach, training, mobilization and research projects.He also has more than a decade of experience developing young leaders in a global context as the founder of Keep Growing, Inc.
