Mentoring Done Right: Everybody Wins!

The buzz: Mentoring.

Mentoring at its most basic involves a more experienced or knowledgeable person helping to guide someone less experienced or knowledgeable for personal and/or professional development.

But mentoring can be so much more. It’s a two-way learning street, with its own rules and culture. It can be done in reverse. And it can help your organization pass on cultural norms and more.

The experts speak.

Sherryanne Meyer, Air Products and Chemicals: “’Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi!’ is the phrase I will occasionally recite to colleagues who have some knowledge that I need. Obi Wan was Luke and Anakin Skywalker’s mentor in Star Wars.”

Sarah Cooke, Great Place to Work: “I’d rather regret the things I have done than the things that I haven’t” (Lucille Ball).

Meaghan Sullivan, SAP: “Dress for success… always present yourself both mentally and in physical appearance in the job that you want to be in… one level up.”
