We believe that mentors are an important part of personal and professional development. They are guides through times when people need someone that is able to point them in the right direction. Good mentors are enthusiastic people, enjoying the role they play in helping others achieve their goals.

There are many qualities of a good mentor. While a company is considering a mentor, look for someone who is enthusiastic, a good fit, respectful of others and a respected expert in their field. This will help you get the results you want and hopefully create a beneficial relationship for both you and your chosen mentor.

Here are a few qualities that you can look for before appointing your mentor:

  • The employee must be enthusiastic about the position

A Mentor is someone who will see the position as adding value to the company with their leadership skills as not in compensation for materialistic items or money.

  • Fit the Company brand

When looking for Mentors, find an employee who is a suitable fit for the company brand. A good mentor will create a strategy that fits the company with their talents, skills, and desires and push their colleagues forward and not towards a clone of themselves.

  • Encourage you to set out of your comfort zone

To grow, you’ll need to need to step outside of your comfort zone to be able to have new experiences and learn. A good mentor is capable of identifying your comfort zone and developing steps and activities within your goals that will force you to become comfortable outside of your zone.

  • Active Listeners

Distractions are always around you in the workplace. A good mentor will not have any distractions when you are talking with them, focusing on you and taking part in the conversation. They will ask questions, reflect on your answers and even give you some silence when you need to think
