I read THIS great article on Forbes that provides a zoomed-in-view of the Mentor/Mentee relationship dynamic. Check out the article to reap its full benefits!
A few interesting aspects of the Mentor/ Mentee relationship that I learned from this article are:
- The Mentor AND The Mentee should both be benefitting from this relationship.
- You will get out of this relationship what you put in to it….so define your goals.
- Do not ever underestimate or undervalue someone’s real life experience i.e. there is no comparable substitute for experience.
