I like this picture (couldn’t find one with women though, sorry!).
The deeper into understanding mentoring I get, the more I realise how fluid and evolving it is. Aside from communicating this to our customers, this has caused me to pause and reflect on mentors in my life too.
Some have been leaders, people who have inspired my, albeit briefly.
Others have had a sage piece of advice at a particularly pertinent moment.
One even gave me a kick up the backside when I probably deserved it.
In many ways they have all been a mentor – someone who has taken the time and trouble to help me come to my own conclusions and bring about change.
