Business Mentoring Matters

A Mentor

Posted on Fri, Jun, 05, 2009

 

As much as we would like to see more organizations implementing mentoring programs for their employees, sometimes it is just not feasible for a company to accomplish this.  However, keep in mind, even if you organization does not offer a program, you can still seek out a mentor.  How about scheduling an appointment with a co-worker that you admire?  Or, inviting one of your friends to a cup of coffee?  Or, visiting one of your college professors?  Mentors can come in many different ways, can be found in different locations, and sometimes it can be the last person you expected.  So what are you waiting for?  Go strike up a conversation with an old friend, colleague or professor.  I am sure you will not regret it!  If anything, you may learn something new.
