We had such a wonderful discussion last night with Heloise Nel from Egon Zehnder in our Mentors Manor. Heloise mentioned 5 things to think about and take action on when looking for a mentor:
- Demonstrate your future potential, high energy, positivity and motivation. - Put your hand up - lean in, take a risk, get out your comfort zone and be noticed - Look for someone two levels up from you (that way there is more chance the person has something in common with you in terms of life stages). Go to that person with a specific problem to discuss. - Look for multiple mentors with the objective of developing your own personal board of directors - Have a deadline around what you want to achieve - Show progress and take action
We also talked a little about the challenges in mentor-mentee relationships. Some of the discussion reflected the content of a blog written by Briony Liber Coaching and one of our members Eva Masemola.
Enjoy the read and share with us your experiences of mentorship!
