Become a Mentor
A mentor is a person who leaves a legacy behind in the form of people who have benefited from the mentor's life experiences.
Each one of us has a life that is a unique tapestry. Within the threads of that tapestry are life experiences waiting to be shared.
All you need is a genuine interest in sharing your life experience and expertise in a Mentor/Mentee relationship. There are many qualities and skills that good mentors share.
Listen: Can you offer an ear, and not necessarily advice?
Are Accessible: Does your schedule permit a mentoring relationship?
Share: Are you willing to share your knowledge, expertise, skills, and time?
Motivate: Can you motivate the Mentee to reach their full potential?
Provide Insight: Can you use your personal experience to help your Mentee avoid mistakes and learn from good decisions?
Guide: Can you guide the Mentee to determine his/her right course of action; not preach or dictate?
Provide a Positive Influence: Do you project a positive, upbeat image? Are you a positive role model?
Are Honest and Open: Can you offer your thoughts and constructive feedback honestly and openly?
Provide a Fresh Perspective: Can you help your Mentee see a situation with fresh eyes?
Offer Advice: Can you offer advice – only if asked? Your Mentee may want a sounding board to help him/her work out issues and come to their own conclusion.
Are Cheerleaders: Can you offer support and encouragement?
If this sounds like you then we would love to have you!
