January is National Mentorship Month, which focuses attention on the need for mentors, as well as how each of us can work together to increase the number of mentors to help ensure positive outcomes for people and professionals.
Investing your time and energy in a mentorship program at work not only helps employees to be their best at their current position, but it also helps develop your organization’s future leaders. Mentors help to:
- Provide sounding boards for ideas
- provide professional feedback
- can help you grow your network
75% of executives say mentoring has been critical to their career development according to a survey by the American Society for Training and Development.
Traits of a good mentor: how to be one and how to find one
Having a great mentor can have an immense positive impact on your career but how do you not just find one, but find the one that’s right for you? A tricky thing about mentoring is that it’s often informal which can make it difficult to find an entry point.
