3 Strategies to Maximize Your Mentor Relationship

This is part one of a three part series on maximizing your
relationship with your mentor. You can also use these strategies to
help you find a mentor.

Strategy 1

Find the right mentoring relationship by asking the right question.

Often potential mentors overestimate the amount of time the
relationship will require and sometimes potential mentors don’t
believe they are qualified. Asking a potential mentor, “will you
be my mentor”, could lead a mentor to think how busy they already
are and how they can’t take on one more thing. Instead ask people
you would like to be your mentors if they have time to offer their
opinions on some of your ideas. Be clear on how their strength can
help move you to the next level of professional development.

Until next time,
