Why It’s Important To Make Time To Mentor
Why It's Important To Make Time To Mentor
by Kara Goldin. Forbes.
Sometimes there aren’t enough hours in the day. Whether I’m working with my team, meeting suppliers or interviewing other business leaders for The Kara Network, my week is jam-packed with things to do.
But no matter how busy I am, I always set aside five hours each week for one very important task: mentoring. Sitting down for a coffee with a young entrepreneur to hear what they’re up to and to offer them the benefit of my experience is one of the most valuable uses of my time.
Of course, there is a selfless element to mentoring. Experience is a unique resource that young entrepreneurs don’t have. But the value of mentoring is not all one-side. Here are four ways you’ll benefit from offering your support.
1. You get real insight into the next big thing
2. You’re networking with the next generation of leaders
3. You can pass on your own passions
4. You’ll become a better leader
The value of mentoring can have a huge impact for both the mentee’s business and mentor’s business by helping them to THRIVE and take the next milestone.
