Truth-Telling

How to be a Better Mentor

Trevor No Comment

mentoring for success

Good mentoring is all about telling the truth. When you use truth-telling as the basis for your mentoring relationship, great things will happen.

ONE. Avoid ‘gotcha’ moments. Instead of waiting for your mentee to mess up, provide critique as a chance to offer help and guidance.

TWO. Seek to understand. Before rushing into judgment, strive to understand what is driving their decision. It might reveal more than you think.

THREE. Be good to them. Mentoring is about building trust, and one sure way to do that is to remove obstacles and giving them the resources they need.

FOUR. Start a 2-way conversation. Start by asking “What can I do better?” this will allow for an honest conversation and make it easier for both of you.

FIVE. Help them think big. The bigger picture is the hardest thing to see with inexperienced eyes; help your mentees see how their role and problems fit into your business’s overall.

Mentoring is a great opportunity to take someone who shows promise in your company and ensure that they become long term assets.
