Mentorships can give you vision and guidance to exciting new steps in your professional voyage. It can lead to a promotion, a new job, or simply a better work-life balance. Undoubtedly, the right mentor-mentee relationship can make an impact that will last a lifetime and encourages the important creed of paying it forward.

Here are the top 5 reasons to have one :

01. IMPROVE CONFIDENCE :

A mentor’s assessment can remove many of the doubts that accompany unanswered questions, improving your sense of self-confidence in your decisions and life’s path. You’ll also gain more poise to take risks and articulate your reasoning to your team.

02. MAKE SMARTER DECISIONS :

A mentor is someone who can share their challenges and experiences with you so that you can learn from any mistakes they made so that you can make a more informed decision for your own situation. Let their historical view help you make smart choices.

03. CREATE A CULTURE OF EXCELLENCE :

An environment that encourages coaching is naturally more creative and focused on possibilities and opportunities, creating an ethos where people will not fear sharing thoughts or ideas. It’s likely that everyone in your world has hidden resources and abilities…a mentor can help bring these to the fore.

04. BALANCE YOUR WORLD :

Of course, our lives are busy - projects to manage, ideas to develop, solutions to implement…all while likely managing the demands of a family, social life, and community pursuits. A mentor can help you resolve when to turn off your professional self and devote time and energy to your family and friends.

05. GREATER JOB SATISFACTION :

Bringing you the benefit of hindsight, a mentor can present lessons learned and life skills to help you navigate a myriad of workplace challenges. From dealing with a difficult co-worker to climbing a daunting corporate ladder, allow a mentor give you their benefit of retrospection.

New year, new goals, new resources to help! Are you looking to take your business or career to the next level?

A mentor can provide the intellectual and emotional support you need to point yourself in the right direction.
