When you find someone who can personally mentor you, use these guidelines to help develop a positive mentoring relationship with that person:
– Ask the right questions. Give thought to the questions you will ask before your time with your mentor. Make the questions strategic for your growth.
– Don’t let ego get in the way of learning.
– Put into effect immediately what you are learning.
– Be disciplined in relating to the mentor. Arrange for ample time, select the subject matter in advance, and do your homework to make sessions profitable.
