Mentoring should be a Win-Win

If you are committed and invested in the relationship it will be a win-win for both parties involved.

So what? What’s the big deal about mentoring and what’s the value for the two people involved?

You both get to share your ideas and thoughts.

You both get to be heard and acknowledged.

You both get real satisfaction when the relationship begins to gel and becomes productive.

You both learn something from each other, no matter what that may be; you will be a better person because of the relationship.

The mentor needs to provide direction, focus, information, network connections and attitude adjustments not just the answers. Lead by example and provide lots of relevant information but do not do the work for the mentee. Be the advisor and the trusted information source and remember what it was like when you started and needed a hand.

People make or break almost every business transaction and it seems to take some time and life experiences before that becomes apparent to most people. Mentoring helps shorten that process.

Go into the relationship with a positive “can do” attitude and that will start the productive ball rolling.

Pay attention and really listen when the mentee speaks and the tone will be set for effective communications and the basis of a strong and lasting relationship.

It really will make a difference in someone's life and it usually ends up being in yours too.
