The invaluable benefits of mentoring for both mentors and mentees
The benefits to being mentored are no secret. Career guidance, insider industry perspectives, support and skills development are all amongst the advantages of having a strong mentor.
But, a mentor benefits from the relationship as well. Aside from paying-it-forward as a role model, the relationship allows a mentor to develop his or her leadership skills and listening skills – both of which can be a career boost.
And, by simply connecting with each other, both mentee and mentor are expanding their professional network. Regardless of professional experience, everyone has a network. By connecting with each other, the doors to both networks are opened to new opportunities and possibilities.
