How to Be a Mentor

How to be a Mentor | BCBusiness

1. Collect a stable of underlings. The more people looking up to you, the more powerful you appear.

2. Expand your advice outside the business world to ensure that your mentee is well rounded.

3. Share your network with your mentee by giving out the phone numbers of your friends and colleagues.

4. Start a weekly digest of all your thoughts and revelations. Lift quotes from other luminaries when you’re short on material.

5. Have fun and take your mentee on unexpected outings. Coffee dates and lunches are far too predictable.

6. If there’s no connection, dump your mentee before they get too attached to you.
