The Power of Mentorship!! 

How have you been positively influenced by others in your life?  Be it a teacher, coach, parent, etc. We all can benefit greatly by having a mentor in our lives.  One virtual mentor I have says we need that mentor’s point of view to help us identify our “blind spots”.  Blind spots as in, skills, talents, opportunities that we have but we cannot see, as well as areas of improvement and the overall way we show up in the world.  Let’s face it, it’s almost impossible to see ourselves the way others see us. 

Benefits I’ve experienced from having mentors: Patience, I’ve leaned not to have a knee jerk reaction, but rather take my time to reply in a calm, well-thought-out manner.  Balance taught me to empathize and try to see the point of view of others to gain a better understanding and seek win-win resolutions when possible. Vocalize, have the courage to speak up and speak my mind, if I don’t agree with something, I can let the be known in a professional, respectable way.

 

So, how has a mentor influenced your life.  Do you have a mentor, if not, I highly suggest you find one?
