Management IT Mentoring & Coaching

I have recently completed my Assignment for Unit 5016 “Management Coaching & Mentoring Skills” as part of my Level 5 Diploma in Management Coaching and Mentoring (via CMI) and have really enjoyed the process, especially as this means that there is just one Assignment to go to enable me to complete.
