For some reason, the mentor’s idea looks like an old-fashioned idea and isn’t it? Something that can create mental images of knights and squire, or Jedi, is certainly not something that can work in today’s working relationships. Sure, maybe your mentor or sports coach was some kind of mentor, but that was years ago…
In education, it is well-known that teaching one student can be more effective than in the traditional classroom setting. Here the teacher can demonstrate the teaching to their student instead of balancing it on the group. They can work with their student better. Counseling works the same way.
Counseling today helps you achieve the success you deserve.
Many businesses are beginning to see the many benefits of establishing mentor-mentor relationships as a way to improve career development, as well as personal development for their employees. 71% of Fortune 500 companies use some form of education program in their organizations.
On a personal level, having someone on your back who knows the challenges and traps of a business or business can help you reach a level of success that would otherwise be difficult to achieve. There have been many articles and pieces written about how counseling can help a few women and workers achieve the recognition and success they deserve that may not have been easy for them to achieve.
Both the mentor and the mentor can benefit from a strong mentor relationship.
It would be easy to assume that he or she is the only trainee who will benefit from a mentor / mentor relationship. Perhaps, for a more experienced counselor, showing someone the ropes of work can be a burden. However, with strong mentor relationships both parties can benefit quite well.
Most importantly, fulfilling the role of mentor can promote great communication and leadership skills that can help a mentor long after ceasing to be someone else’s mentor. In this way it greatly benefits them to be a good mentor.
Here are some signs of good advice.
Therefore, having a great mentor is obviously a very rewarding experience. But how can these benefits be achieved? What does good advice really look like?
The mentor will be committed to his or her advisor, and the adviser will be committed to his or her advisor. As a result, both parties will soon become aware of each other’s strengths and weaknesses. With this your mentor will be able to drive you to the area that works best for you.
Someone who has been around for a while, has achieved success in your field, will always know people. People would not be able to reach you if you did not have a mentor. That old adage “it’s about who you know” can be very accurate. With a mentor, not only do you know someone you need to know, you know someone who works hard to make sure you achieve success.
The counselor will be able to give you an idea. It is easy to lose the sense of purpose and direction attached to the old 9-5, boring, digestion. The consultant will be able to show you not only how to get the best results for your current performance patterns, but also, by being there, he will show you where your current approach can take you.
Be a good mentor if you want to get more of your training.
Even though having a mentor sounds like something you might be interested in, it can sometimes be difficult to know how to best achieve your transaction end, and what you can do to get the most out of your mentor. Here are a few tips to get you on track.
Allow criticism and advice, or, better yet, seek some advice and criticism from your counselor.  Without such knowledge, there is little practical application to having a mentor, as well as improvement, and with it, progress, is much harder to achieve.
Follow their advice. It does not mean that they are your advisers because they have a lot of experience and knowledge of your field. Thus, each one is a gift.
Think of some counselors. Although in this article I have used the singular term “advisor”, it is not uncommon for you to have more than one. These both remove the pressure (and additional workload) on the individual. It will also give you access to a deep pool of knowledge and experience (assuming mentors are interested in sharing with you) Do not pressure them, especially if they are working toward their goals. Remember that they do the service for you, and even if they are your mentor, they probably do this as a volunteer. If you start dragging, or getting in the way of their work and their progress and goals, (they may also be someone else’s mentors!) Then you may find yourself with a mentor, or someone you don’t really care about or your success. Both can be fatal.
Reach out to potential mentors.
All of the above is good and good, but you want to know how to find a mentor. The truth of the matter is, it is deceptive. First: You need to think of someone in your business or industry who you want to imitate, someone who is approachable.
Second: Don’t do that, I repeat: don’t ask them to be your mentor if they have never heard of you. Unfortunately this is the hardest part, but it makes sense. If they can’t or aren’t on their radar at least. Then you are just a stranger.
Third: Find ways to help them, this can be as simple as rewriting their blog a lot of times, or it can be as difficult as finding a new job or clients (if that works). It is always a good idea to communicate in any situation or business, so at the next company party or mix, attend fully and see where things are going.
