All of us are mentors. Some of us are professional mentors and others are personal. We may not realize that we are serving in that role until much later. It isn’t always apparent.
Over the years, I have been a mentor through an organized program at my former employer. Little did I realize that when I left my job I was STILL a mentor. MORE >When my father died in 2014, I heard from several of his former salespeople that my dad had mentored them throughout their real estate career. This was something I never knew about my dad but recognized that we were very similar. Both of us had a love of helping others through good listening skills, connecting to others, and being patient and persistent in the mentor/mentee relationship.
We can help others grow as professionals, volunteers, parents and community partners by being mentors. The role of a mentor is to provide knowledge, advice, resources, guidance, motivation, emotional support and role modeling. A mentor is a friend, a guide, a listener, and a confidant. A mentor is NOT a parent or guardian, social worker, ATM or babysitter.
