Mentorship is one for anyone looking to develop personally or professionally, and many successful people attribute at least part of their success to having a mentor. The right mentor can impart advice and provide connections that help their mentee reach heights that would be impossible alone. A mentor can serve as a fantastic sounding board at critical points throughout your career.
Here are Laurence Bradford’s quick and snappy top 8 tips on building that perfect mentor relationship:
- Mentorship requires intentional investments of time and energy; you get what you put in.
- Experienced perspectives are invaluable for young careers and companies.
- The best mentors are the ones who can fill gaps in your skillset. Don’t seek a mentor who’s your clone.
- You don’t always have to follow a mentor’s advice–but listen to it and evaluate it.
- Anyone can be a mentor–even without knowing it.
- Diversity of mentorship is important.
- There are specific things you can do to being a good mentee.
