The weekend is almost here! A few weeks ago my daughter Jazz was on Sesame Street in a segment called “P” is for Princess. It got me thinking about other letters and sparked this Tip of the Week.
Tip of the Week: “M” is for Mentor
Whether you are actively looking for a job or have been working for the same company for years, you should have a mentor. At all levels of my development I have had mentors (high school, college, and work) who I reached out to when making important decisions or if I just needed to talk.
How do you choose a mentor…? Start by looking for someone that you know and knows you. Someone you respect is in the same industry as you and has achieved a level of success. Then just ask them. Simply say, “I have a great deal of respect for you and what you have been able to accomplish and I would like you to mentor me”. In most cases this person will say yes. Chances are they too have had or have a mentor of their own.
Now this goes both ways, if you are in the position to mentor someone you should. It’s doesn’t take much time and it will make a difference in their and your lives.
So as you get ready for the weekend, remember “P” is for Princess and “M” is for Mentor.
Have a great day and an even better week!
