Mentorship is a valuable asset in the business world. It is beneficial for both the mentor and the mentee. The mentee benefits from your experience. On the other hand, you, as the mentor, get to sharpen your skills and increase your network. Perhaps you’ve identified a promising young talent in your company and want to help them grow. But where do you begin? What’s the most effective path to accelerate their growth? How do you measure progress? And, just as important, how do you know when to end the mentor/mentee relationship? 

In this episode, I discuss the ways team leadership and upskilling staff can benefit your business. Likewise, I look at the key components of mentoring an employee from identifying goals and communication to knowing when it’s time to end the mentoring relationship. 

“Being a mentor has allowed me to expand my skills.” – Justin Goodbread

Our Favorite Quotes: 

“Both parties, both the mentor and the mentee, should want to have this relationship and it should be clearly established what the outcome needs to be or is desired.” – Justin Goodbread

“Not every time that you enter into a mentor/mentee relationship, is it going to go as expected. I’ve seen this happen in my coaching relationships where business owners started a mentorship, and the relationship turns sour.” – Justin Goodbread
