Mentoring involves a connection in which the mentor gives guidance to the mentee to help them grow and learn. The mentor imparts their wisdom and experience to the mentee, providing advice and assistance to enhance the mentee's skills and potential.
Do you need help reaching your professional goals? Mentoring could be the answer. As your mentor, I will provide you with advice, encouragement, and support. We can have a one-time conversation or a longer-term commitment - whatever works best for you. I can help you identify new opportunities, explore new ideas, and open your mind to new approaches. Book a 30 minute session to find out if mentoring could be the missing piece in your journey.
How I become mentor
As soon as I assumed leadership roles, I began mentoring and developing internal staff. I facilitated the growth of employees within the organization by helping them transition to different departments if their skills could be better utilized elsewhere. I believe that it is the responsibility of a leader to foster the growth of their employees.
And I have recently been providing external mentoring to those who seek my advice, experience, and guidance in order to reach their personal goals.

Key to effective mentoring
Mentees must have a clear idea of what they want to gain from the mentorship - whether it be training, confidence, gaining clarity, or achieving an external goal (such as a raise or pay raise). The mentor must have the necessary knowledge, experience, status, network of contacts, opinions, and ideas in the mentee's field of interest in order to build a successful partnership. Trust is essential for a successful mentorship relationship.
