Becoming a Mentor
There are many reasons for becoming a mentor, including learning about yourself, becoming energized through a fresh personal or professional perspective, and deriving satisfaction for furthering another’s career development. The return on mentoring efforts may also include growing an organization’s management talent and fine-tuning your leadership skills in a one-on-one situation.
Becoming a Protégé
As a protégé, you can build self-confidence, develop professional and winning behaviors, or sharpen critical thinking skills and knowledge. Many can benefit from a mentoring program. A young manager can receive valuable guidance from mid-career executives, and the mid-careerist may benefit from a mentor at the C-suite level. Senior executives ready to move from a small or mid-size organization may benefit from the counsel of a CEO or COO whose career already includes leading more significant, complex firms.
