Five reasons why people want a mentor
“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.”
- John C. Crosby
A mentor can help shorten your learning curve, open your mind to new ideas and possibilities, identify opportunities and advise on how to promote yourself. If your mentor is a colleague or a member of your association, that person can provide invaluable insider information to help you achieve your goals.
A successful, sustainable mentoring program is beneficial to both the mentor and the mentee. According to our MentorCity data, the five most common reasons people want to start a mentoring relationship are:
1. Build their professional network.
2. Improve their public speaking abilities.
3. Better their communication skills.
4. Build their confidence.
5. Accelerate their career growth.
