Importance Of Mentors To Professionals

According to a 2016 study done by the Centre for Workplace Leadership, 71% of Fortune 500 companies have mentoring programs. You ask, why? Because these companies believe that they are investing in these programs. It pays off in performance,  productivity and innovation.

Now, this study is on a broader level, encompassing workplaces. What I would like to talk about in this blog today is mentorship for professionals and how mentorship affects a professional’s career and personal life. If you are still confused about whether to seek a mentor or not, then I would say read this blog and decide for yourself. 
Let’s start then!


Mentors help you get started on your career path

Now, this is self-explanatory. You have been to college, maybe taken up an upskilling course, so you understand the weightage of a mentor’s advice, they have helped you to stay focused, help you to maintain a discipline so that you align with your goal, right? 
So, now that you are a professional, you are bound to get stuck at times so here’s when a mentor’s feedback will help you grow professionally, they will provide you with some effective resources and tools to increase your performance. You can go for a One-on-One mentoring program or any other else that suits your needs and you will realize how mentorship for professionals is necessary at this crucial time.

Mentors help you clarify your goals 

I cannot emphasize this enough, how mentors help you to understand your goals. In your professional career, how many times have you felt lost, or thought that you are not doing enough? I understand this happens with almost everyone. But then if you enroll yourself in a mentorship program that would be the best choice for you. Because you will not be alone, you will have someone with a diverse range of experience who will help you measure your goals and make your goals achievable.

 

Mentors hold you accountable for your goals 

Mentors not just help you clarify your goals, and make them smaller and achievable for you but also keeps you on track by helping you create a system where you can measure how far you have come, or where you lag behind. Without a proper roadmap, you will just keep working without understanding your progress. So that is why mentors hold you accountable.

 

Mentors raise your confidence and problem-solving abilities

There are various surveys that tell us how mentorship helped people grow significantly in a fixed period of time. See, what happens is that mentors as you already know have hands-on experience and that is a crucial thing when you as a professional start working. You are working and learning simultaneously. And you need to show that you are willing to take upon projects out of your comfort zone, but just an upskilling program or a certificate won’t help you with that, you have to work with your confidence and various aspects. In order to save yourself from overwhelmness, seek a mentor who can calm you down and help you see the big picture.

It’s really easy to get stuck in challenges but it is also easy to grow beyond that, how? 
Simple you take the help of a mentor. Now after reading this blog you must have realized how important it is to have a mentor in your life. Many organizations have already understood the importance of mentorship for professionals and they are offering some amazing programs.
So what are you waiting for? Go ahead and start communicating with your mentors!

I’m glad to share my experience working with HackNet Credit Specialist. I had some negative reports of my credit report which really affected me and my family from qualifying for a mortgage at other lenders. I went online and saw people recommending him for his good work and I contact him via mail HACKNET567@GMAIL.COM. He cleared all issues relating to my report within a couple of week. If you are having any issues concerning your credit report please CONTACT him with the above email he’s professional and if you also need to qualify for a mortgage with a lender with no lender overlays. Thanks
