“The value of a mentor who can help cultivate leadership skills one-on-one in real-time, reduce the anxiety in taking big steps, and focus leaders on achieving their goals – is huge. Many times it’s the first few years out of school that can shape the career path of a [millennial], and that is determined by whether they create or are given an opportunity to demonstrate their leadership skill.” - via Forbes
“We need people outside of our heads and our circumstances to see where we are struggling and where we are succeeding so that they can point out high impact changes we can make.” - via The Art of Simple
"While research has shown those who have mentors tend to have better career-related outcomes that stem from these mentor functions, it also shows those who receive the greatest benefit have multiple mentors. Some people will have different advisors at different points in their lives, each making a unique contribution. Others, however, actively seek the counsel of more than one mentor at the same point in time. For those whose jobs have a great deal of responsibility and complexity, having multiple mentors can serve as an informal board of directors." - Via The Leadership Effect
