Somewhere between being an apprentice and hiring a career coach lies the empowering land of mentors and mentees. Mentorship and the idea of working with a mentor is synonymous with success. This ideal relationship is elusive for many, due to overthinking what a mentor is and is not. Maybe you feel left out of this important rite of passage. Yet, you are not alone in this feeling. Over 80 percent of people interviewed for Marti Konstant’s book Activate Your Agile Career confessed they had no official mentor throughout their career. However, they all experienced mentor moments when they received valuable feedback. Like the time you were stuck with a pesky issue and you reached out to the one person who had solved a similar problem. And by being a mentor, you transform learners into leaders.
Marti Konstant, workplace futurist and career strategist, will share a compelling experience with mentorship in her career and what she learned by interviewing hundreds of people about their career journeys.
