logo-globeandmail213wMany thanks to Lisa Kimmel, of Edelman PR in Toronto, for authoring a great article on the true benefits of mentorship on an employee’s career and mentioning Chronus.

In the article she examines the reasons why an employee would seek out a mentor. Here’s an excerpt:

“The benefits of a mentorship are primarily attitudinal in nature. They can effect a change in attitude, such as job satisfaction; behaviour, such as job performance; or motivation, such as career commitment. So, before you rush to check off “find a mentor” on your career goal list, ask yourself why it is that you need a mentor.

  • Do you want to build or expand your professional network?
  • Do you want to enhance your leadership skills?
  • Are you looking to develop your problem-solving abilities?
  • Do you want to facilitate better communication among your colleagues?
  • Are you seeking new perspectives?
  • Are you trying to figure out how to navigate your company’s corporate culture?”

Here’s the complete article – it’s a great read!
