What To Look For When Choosing A Mentor
We all need mentors who will guide us in our pursuit of excellence for our lives.
Asking for advice is great. Seeking help to aid your personal development is a good idea. But you have to be selective in your choice or you will find yourself following the wrong advice at the wrong time.
Find Mentors Who Are Interested In Your Development
A mentor can be distinguished by the quality of the questions he or she asks you.
Are they asking you questions or constantly telling you what to do?
A mentor who is seeking to understand your situation and what is best for you will ask questions to understand you better.
The most important question they can ask you is, “What would you like to achieve and how can I help you get there?” This is the basis of a concept called, ‘Transformational Leadership.’ These kind of leaders are not seeking the bottom line, they are invested in the development and fulfillment of the people who follow them.
A Mentor Should Be Available
Anyone who is unavailable to meet or shows little interest in mentoring you is probably not the right candidate. The chemistry runs both ways. A mentor should find you interesting and be willing to invest time and energy in your development journey just as much as you respect and open yourself up to their help.
Finally, a transformative mentor will not tell you what they think works best or suggest what you should be doing. They will ask you the right questions to guide you to the truth you already hold inside you. Your truth.
