Looking at it from the most basic level, mentoring is a guaranteed way to show someone that another person cares about them. Mentors can provide their knowledge and experience to help others deal with challenges in their day-to-day lives. Mentors also help their mentees acquire knowledge that they may not have otherwise been exposed too. Mentors provide the opportunity to learn valuable information relating to any number of situations.
Mentors can come in any shape or size and can benefit individuals from students to colleagues. When mentors enter the lives of young students, they have a tremendous impact on their daily lives. Not only can they help support them academically, but they can also support them through their day-to-day activities. Mentors can help build their self-esteem and show them how to relate to those around them, strengthening their skills of communication.
Mentors can also have an enormous impact on the lives of their colleagues. When you step up and help someone else set career goals and help them take the steps to reach those goals, it is a resource that can’t be matched. Not only do the mentees grow from the time spent with their mentors, but the mentors gain an understanding of themselves and grow as a result of the relationship as well. John T Yeska Jr is using his experience and knowledge as a pilot to mentor new pilots entering into the field. He is also looking forward to passing the Florida bar exams in 2016 so he can mentor fellow attorneys who are getting ready to take the exams.
