“Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.”

- John C. Crosby

A mentor can help shorten your learning curve, open your mind to new ideas and possibilities, identify opportunities and advise on how to promote yourself. If your mentor is a colleague or a member of your association, that person can provide invaluable insider information to help you achieve your goals.

A successful, sustainable mentoring program is beneficial to both the mentor and the mentee. According to our MentorCity data, the five most common reasons people want to start a mentoring relationship are:

1. Build their professional network.

2. Improve their public speaking abilities.

3. Better their communication skills.

4. Build their confidence.
