Have you ever wondered how many people there are in your life that have had some level of influence upon you and the choices you’ve made that have shaped who you are today?
This week we’re discussing how to benefit from the power of mentoring, whether as mentor or a mentee, Mentors help people determine who they want to become, how they must change in order to become these people, and how they can take advantage of their experiences to bring about these changes
There are 3 main benefits to having a mentor:
- A mentors knowledge and experience can help guide and steer you and avoid making the same mistakes they did.
- Their mentorship helps to build your self confidence.
- Having encouragement helps you to aim higher and take leadership. By having someone who believes in you, will share their network, vouch for you and willing to go that extra mile to help you, you are sure to succeed.
