A Mentoring Garden
Mentors and mentees don't always have similar viewpoints on the fundamental issues that can arise during mentoring. A mentor's job isn't to clone his or her own ideas and implant them into the mentee's head. Instead, it is to give the mentee space and encouragement to grow their own ideas while exploring new points of view. Speak with your mentoring partner today about how you can open your mind to new ideas.
Dedicated, not Lucky
It is easy to equate success with luck, however many of the most accomplished people in the world will say luck played no part in their success. It was all due to dedication and hard work. Talk with your mentor today about how you can apply yourself to create your own luck.
Communicating through Barriers
Communication can be difficult. The next time you find yourself in a communication bind, remember that everyone views the world through different eyes. What may be very clear to you could be out of focus for other individuals.
