Your mentor will help you “see around corners” in your career so you know what it takes to progress. Your mentor will be your guide and sounding board for ideas, helping you reflect on your goals and decide on the best course of action.
Knowledge and skills
Your mentor will help you identify the expertise you need to succeed, including building confidence, improving your presentation and communication skills. You will also get advice on additional resources you can leverage, including books, articles, and events.
Working regularly with a mentor ensures that you maintain focus on your career growth and have consistent conversations about how you can improve. Long-term career growth is often about improving a little bit every day, rather than in short bursts.
Your mentor can offer an opportunity to expand your existing network of professional contacts by introducing you to relevant connections. On average, our mentees receive 3.5 connections from their mentors.
