In this episode of “Making Waves at C-Level” Thom Singer talks with his two “mentees” about the power of good mentorship.  Jake Pusch and Nicodemus Abowd joined Thom at SXSW in 2019 on a panel about this same topic.
How can a mentor help you succeed.  How do you find a mentor.  Why be a mentor?  All of this is covered in a friendly and fun way.
Many companies have “Mentor” programs, but few seem to be more than just an attempt at matching people up to build the mentee / mentor relationship.  But when a real mentor comes along, it changes the game forever for the mentee.
This is a complex issue that is valuable for individuals and companies to better help their people find ongoing success. For more on “Good Mentorship” check out this post on “What is a Mentor?”
