You’ve probably heard the term ”mentoring” in connection with personal and corporate development programs, but few really know how mentoring can help you to grow, improve and succeed.
So here’s a look at four major benefits of mentoring in both a personal and a professional setting.
Benefit #1: Mentors Provide InsightA mentor can provide you with objective, helpful insights that you may not have discovered on your own. Each person’s mind works slightly differently and our perceptions are colored by our own experiences. A mentor can provide an objective, third party perspective and insights on your life, your career and beyond.
Benefit #2: Mentors Draw Upon Experience to Help You Avoid PitfallsThe most talented mentors have ”been there” and ”done that,” so they can draw upon that valuable experience to provide advice and recommendations to mentees who are traveling along the same path that they once traveled. This enables mentees to avoid the pitfalls and snares that would have otherwise fallen victim to. As a result, you can benefit from your mentor’s experience to enjoy more rapid growth, personal development, career advancement and more.
Benefit #3: Mentors Hold You AccountableAttempting self-improvement, personal development or career growth on your own can be a challenge, especially if you’re prone to procrastination or avoidance. It’s hard to get and stay motivated, especially when you’re facing a real challenge. It’s even more difficult to achieve your goals when there’s nobody to answer to beside yourself! A mentor holds you accountable and this accountability serves as a powerful motivator enabling you to experience more rapid growth and ultimately, success!
Benefit #4: Mentors Help You Achieve Your GoalsA mentor can help you to set ”SMART” goals — that is, goals which are specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-bound. Once you’ve set those goals, your mentor can help you develop the skills, resources and connections you need to succeed, while keeping you motivated and holding you accountable for reaching those objectives.
Assistance with goal setting is especially important for those who have a particular objective or dream in mind, but don’t quite know what skills or steps are required in order to fulfill that dream. But a mentor has typically traveled down that path before, so he or she will know exactly what needs to be done in order for you to succeed!
