Do You Need A Mentor?

 

I believe in having a mentor and mentoring someone.

My belief in mentoring was further solidified through a conversation that I once had with a highly successful entrepreneur many years ago. I ran into him at a conference and he gave me some excellent advice for networking, self-branding and how to grow professionally.

He told me some apt stories that made me realise the undisputed power of mentoring and why everyone needs a mentor in life or at work.

“I have a mentor. No one is too good or too successful to have a mentor. You are never too old, clever or experienced to have a mentor. Most successful people have mentors,” he said. 

 

Mentoring empowers!

The more you understand the process of mentoring, the more you realise that it’s no surprise that some of the most successful and influential people in the world can easily tie their defining moments in live back to a strong mentoring relationship they had or still have.

At work, when it comes to the wisdom that you need to help you advance in your career, your mentor will be the one there guiding and helping you to maximise your potentials. A mentor will also help you to open doors; empower you, engage and enable you to focus on your goals, help you to realise what you are capable of achieving regardless of the challenges you foresee.

 

What’s mentoring at work?

Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximise their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be.

Mentoring is becoming increasing popular now that its potential is appreciated by most people.

In addition, research has shown that mentoring relationships succeed and are satisfying for both parties when both the mentor and the person being mentored take an active role in developing the relationship.
