Giving Back Through Mentoring

What does it mean to “give back”? “Giving back” is a phrase that likely means different things to different people. In the case of this blog, “giving back” means ensuring an organization succeeds by investing your time and talent to foster the growth of mentees. Mentoring does just that.

            When you mentor someone, you, your mentee, and your organization all benefit. You gain a fresh perspective on the workplace, accelerate your mentee’s learning, and build your mentee’s leadership skills, your mentee benefits by driving them to set goals and strive toward them, and the company benefits by having better-educated employees and showing that they care about the success of their employees. When a mentoring program is successfully implemented, everybody wins.
