If You Have a Career, You Need To Have (and be) A Mentor


Robby

There’s a great post over on the Refresh Leadership blog about the Lost Art of Mentoring. In fact, it’s a multi-part series. But it starts with a great gem:

Years after the fact, I am still impacted by a specific mentor who would go on walks with me to talk through issues, listen, give advice, and be transparent about his own shortcomings, which taught me to strive for resolution in trials, listen with the intent of understanding, offer constructive input, and humbly know that I will forever be a work in progress. These qualities have molded me into who I am through constancy and desire to grow.

Chances are you have a similar story to tell about someone in your own life.

There are lots of mentoring opportunities here in Indianapolis. But you can be a mentor or be mentored anywhere. The full article has some fantastic points, including:

With the ever-changing climate in business, social media, and technology, now is a great time to resurface one of the greatest gifts you can give another – your knowledge. Take past mentors in life as inspiration to bridge the gap in your office between your least experienced or struggling employees. Don’t underestimate the power you can have to make a difference in a person’s work life, as well as home life. If you have an engagement problem in your office, this is a great way to turn the tides.

Are you a mentor? And do you have one of your own?
