The Value of Mentors in Business and life

As January is National Mentoring Month, I’d like to share the value I received as a mentor and the value I provide as a mentor. Early in my career, I was very fortunate to be assigned a mentor who eventually became a Fortune 50 company CEO. What surprised me about my discussions with him was that most of the conversation pertained to my life, not just business. He provided me with insights into ethics, logic, passion, mind, body, and spirit. To this day, we still connect, and I can never thank him enough. He made me promise to do the same for someone else. It is a promise that I genuinely enjoy.
