Should I become a mentor? Can I be a mentor? For most people, it’s hard to know when exactly it is that someone accumulates enough experience and wisdom to be able to guide another person.
I’ll let you in on a secret: most people are ready for the role before they think. All of us have experiences that can help shed light on the challenges another person is going through. It’s just a matter of recognizing when it’s time to take on that level of commitment and responsibility. Listening for the right moment is a huge part of mentoring, and often times, it’s what separates good mentors from great ones.
