Have you ever had a business mentor? If you have—and your experience was positive—then you understand how much you can gain from regular contact with someone who has been where you’d like to go.
Now, have you ever thought about mentorship from the flip side? Most mentors say they get as much from the experience as their mentee does. In fact, some say it helps them build their leadership skills or emotional intelligence. Others describe learning new things in their industry or about business at large—or deepening their understanding of lessons they’ve already learned.
“Everyone has a unique view of the world, and their experiences can help fast track your growth,” explains EO Brisbane member Gerard Murtagh, who has experienced both sides of the mentorship equation, thanks to EO Mentorship.
