Why is Mentorship important?
Mentorship is an important part of a person's professional development. It provides an opportunity to learn skills while engaging in professional socialization. Having a mentor is like having a career coach, who not only knows the game very well but either played or currently plays at a high level. They draw from their career experience and customize their advice to help you achieve your goals. Whether your goal is start a business, attain a promotion or become a better leader, advice from someone successful who has already achieved similar success is a great place to start.
When should I consider Mentorship?
Short answer, always! Mentorship is a fantastic place to start when you are planning your career, considering a transition to a different field, or if you feel like your career has stalled. Mentors have the opportunity to provide specific advice as an outsider looking in on your career. They have a fresh perspective and often will make comments or suggestions you have never thought about before. After a conversation with a Mentor you will typically feel inspired, because someone you may aspire to be has taken time from their day to talk about you.
