with Lisa Fain, of the Center for Mentoring Excellence
A mentor is not a sage on a stage but a guide on the side. — Lisa Fain
Mentors play an important role in the personal and professional development of a person. They provide guidance and constructive feedback to their mentee and fosters their skills. Having a mentor to guide you or being in a mentor-mentee relationship, is the most powerful tool to create meaningful relationships both in business and in life.
But where do you find a mentor? And how do you find them?
