S5 Ep 8 – How To Be a Great Mentor and Mentee

Series 5
Epsiode 8
22 Mins

Mentors can be such a valuable investment for anyone starting out in their career and needing support. A great mentor can help you progress your career and build self-esteem. They are someone you can bounce ideas off, validate your thoughts and seek assurance in your decision-making. They can also help you prep for job interview and, if they do this successfully, they can even give you a great reference to help you get an offer. 

Through this process as a mentee, you are supported to increase you awareness, deepen your learning, improve your performance and ultimately supported to achieve your goals. 

On this episode of Mums on Cloud Nine, Heather talks about how to create a great relationship between a mentor and mentee, and it’s so important to build a strong foundation so that your relationship is a successful one.
