How To Be An Amazing Mentor

Greetings everyone and welcome back to Free Form Fridays
I’m coming at ya from sunny Orlando Florida, where today I’ll be speaking to 400 of the brightest business students from around the world.

I’m at the Beta Gamma Sigma Global Leadership Summit and will be talking about how to be a great mentor.

Here goes it….

To be an amazing mentor
You should open the door…for
Your protégé
So they
Can fast track their career
Start by bending the ear
Of an executive with the ability to recognize
A prize and career strategize
High potential in the making
And you’ll be staking
Your reputation, efforts, and time
Building them up makes you feel sublime

To be an amazing mentor you will
Give your protégé freedom and opportunity to build skill
To do their job and get ahead
Not giving constructive criticism but developmental feedback instead
Be a sounding board, listen to their self-exploration
Without hesitation
offer them confirmation
You’ll be there as a friend
Throughout changes in jobs and life….contributing value to the very end
Be there with emotional support and friendship
Mentoring after all, is really about building a developmental relationship

To be an amazing mentor means you’re an ally and protector
Build your protégé up, and reassure…
Them, that you’ll own up when mistakes are made
Coach them toward success as failures fade
Your station
Requires you to share information
Give them access to networks and opportunities to grow
Be patient when progress is slow
Be by their side…
As a guide
And a role model who inspires and motivates
Someone who actively participates
To the betterment of another human being
Learn from protégés while seeing
Personal and professional achievements gained
Quality of life improved, happiness sustained

Being an amazing mentor requires synergy
When you plus me equals three
Find someone with expertise complementarity
Be your best and help someone today
You’ll probably get promoted along the way
