Choosing a Mentor Warren MI

Some people may have had a mentor-perhaps even more than one-or attempted a mentoring relationship in the past but, alas, none have worked. If you can't find a mentor, it's possible you may not be trying hard enough. Leverage you efforts by narrowing your search.

Choosing a Mentor

1. What Should I Do if I Can't Find a Mentor? Some people may have had a mentor-perhaps even more than one-or attempted a mentoring relationship in the past but, alas, none have worked. If you can't find a mentor, it's possible you may not be trying hard enough. Leverage you efforts by narrowing your search.

Look for someone who's already had a mentor. Statistics show those who've had mentors are generally much more enthusiastic about mentoring someone else.

2. What if the Mentor or Protégé Doesn't Follow Through? Your first step is to meet with your partner and talk about the problem. Once you've met, shared your grievances, and opened up communication, the relationship may still be stagnate. It may be time to dissolve the relationship.

The best solution is to be up front. If you're the protégé, explain that you are moving on to another area of specialization and have found someone more appropriate for you. If you're the mentor, say that you think it's time for the person to move on to someone with a greater level of specialization.

3. What if My Company Assigns Me a Mentor Who Doesn't Really Help Me? A number of companies have initiated formal mentoring programs and are structured enough to have to assign mentors to lower-level individuals, but often no way to monitor whether the relationship is effective.
