Mentorship sounds like a daunting task and may come at an inopportune time; However, there comes a lot of pride in challenging yourself to become a mentor or protégé. When you step into this world of Mentorship with dedication and commitment, you open yourself and others to new career development and problem solving.
When a professional has a mentor, it makes the career path less lonely and provides guidance for those times when we need direction. That’s why you NEED to participate in the Capital Chapter Mentorship Program as an experienced mentor or a protégé looking for guidance and someone to ask questions to.
As Steven Spielberg once said “The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.” It’s never too early nor too late to begin a mentorship. We all have something to learn and pass on to one another to achieve career and life goals. It is one of the greatest rewards to empower someone or be that someone whom is empowered. Be a success story and join the mentorship program today, it’s the perfect time!
