Becoming a mentor is embarking on the rewarding journey of passing on the knowledge and experience that you value most to help another person achieve their goals. Mentors need not be trainers nor certified experts, rather, the value of a mentor is their unique perspectives, experiences and knowledge. As a mentor, you are uniquely qualified to bring value to a mentee simply based on who you are, what you’ve done and your desire to share your learnings and perspectives with another. Additionally, you also receive the following personal and professional benefits from mentoring. Here are some key advantages of being a mentor:

Personal Growth

Mentoring provides the opportunity for you to build your self-awareness and ability to be reflective. In working with a mentee, you will reflect on your own experiences, knowledge and values. By sharing your insights, you can deepen your own understanding and gain new perspectives.

Leadership Skill Development

Being a mentor allows you to hone essential skills you might not have the opportunity to use very often, but that may be crucial to your overall performance and advancement such as: Active listening, building trust, expressing empathy, coaching, motivating and giving constructive feedback.

Understanding Your Value & Impact

It is easy to undervalue the knowledge and experience that you have accumulated over time. Mentoring provides an enhanced recognition of your value; your experience, skills and knowledge as seen through the fresh eyes of a mentee. You will discover first-hand how much of an impact you can make on another’s development and experience the gratification that comes with it. Truly valuing your own talents can help you to be more proactive in making contributions within the organization.

Expanded Professional Network & Reputation

Mentoring can expand your professional network and enhance your reputation within your industry or community. You can connect with other professionals, stay informed about industry trends, and position yourself as a thought leader and mentor in your field. Building a mentoring relationship can also lead to strong, lasting connections. These relationships often extend beyond the mentorship period and can evolve into friendships, professional collaborations, or mutually beneficial partnerships.

Enhanced Organizational Perspectives

Connecting with a mentee through mentorship will help you gain an understanding of their working environment, providing the opportunity to understand the experiences and perspectives from someone at a different level in the organization; perspectives that are not often expressed but can be invaluable to company leadership and retention efforts. In addition, the opportunity to make new connections through them within the sphere of their position could enhance your business exposure and perspectives outside of your own sphere of influence.
