“Whether in your professional life or your personal life, a mentor-mentee relationship is one of the most important relationships you will have. No matter how successful you become, you can always learn more.” –Robert Herjavec, Founder of Herjavec Group, Shark on ABC’s Shark Tank, Bestselling Author

Top 3 Myths About Mentorship
  • Myth #1: You should formally request a mentor relationship. Instead, take a keen interest in the mentor and validate that individual. Ask questions, listen, engage.
  • Myth #2: Your mentor should be outside your current organization or above you on the pay scale. The truth is, if you’re leveraging the relationship for guidance and learning, a difference in pay scale does not matter.
  • Myth #3: You’re going to have one mentor—forever! On the contrary, as you progress in your career, you will learn from different people in your life.
