Finding someone to help you navigate your career path is crucial to success, but make sure to avoid these mistakes.
Now, don’t get me wrong—mentorship is one of the biggest keys to success. But believe it or not, there is a right and a wrong way to seek out a mentor and build a mutually beneficial relationship. In many cases, the best mentoring happens without the formal label “mentoring.” Nobody asked anybody to go steady, nobody sent a note saying, “Would you be my mentor?” followed by yes, no, and maybe boxes to check. Questions were asked, thoughts were shared, and advice was given. Voilà, an effortless mentor relationship is born.
