How does Mentorship Work?

By Stride Ahead

We all need guidance at some point in time in our life, but still, we hesitate just because of fear of judgement! The general state of mind is “if I’ll reveal my problems, my insecurities, or any setback then the person on the other side will judge me!” Resultant, the problem grows with the time leading to more self-doubt, and hampered growth. 

But this is not how Mentorship works, there are many aspects to it. A mentor also seeks growth and learning when he helps you in achieving your goals. Sometimes individuals help us grow and develop our skills, help us discover our career path, and uncover our hidden potential, while we enrich their respective skills, their insights, and their knowledge. That person is the kind of Mentor which we all ask for. It’s all about mutual benefit in our respective areas of needs.                   

We seek help from people who are more knowledgeable, personable, retain more experience in terms of career or life and are ready to understand us, but in reality, they also learn from us while solving our problems. They gain more from our thought process, our understanding about life, etc. 

It’s a two-way process where both the parties benefit each other leading to mutual problem-solving!      

However, there are certain qualities of a Mentor which every person should look for: 

Good listener –

We all want someone, who is ready to listen to us, who allows us to let out  all our confusions which we have regarding our life experiences. It is one of the most demanded skills required from any Mentor. 

Empathetic –

It is the ability to sense and feel other people’s emotions, with the capability to imagine what someone else might be thinking or feeling. Sometimes it is called “perspective taking”. An actual mentor is one who puts himself in place of you to understand your perspective. 

 Understands and respects your thought process –

Only listening is not sufficient for a person, but they also need to respect your thought process and your way of seeing life. Only then, they can provide the solutions that are tailored to fit your problems or needs. 

Looks for the solution rather focusing on the problem all the time –

In reality, people in general focus more on the problem rather than on solutions, which worsens the problem more. A good mentor looks for solutions rather than focusing on problems. He analyses the problem and then thinks of the possible solutions which can be put in place for the current situation. 

Positive thinker –    

Last, but not the least, a good mentor must exhibit a positive, encouraging personality. If he is not positive in his life, then he wouldn’t be able to solve the problems of other people for sure. A pessimistic attitude is a big NO for Mentors. In fact, the obvious perfect recipe for a good Mentor is to be the careful blend of optimistic and realistic or practical. 

After knowing all about Mentorship, it is evident that Mentorship is a parallel process between the mentor and the mentee. It is crucial for the people, especially today’s youth, that they should seek advice whenever they feel that they are in jeopardy, or find themselves lost and confused. This process not only leads to positive changes but also helps in all-round growth of everyone.          

But where should you look for such Mentorship that not only helps you drive your career but takes an initiative to channel all-round holistic development of your life?
