Mentors can be beneficial to anyones life. Young business professionals, college students, and high school students all have the capability to grow with a mentor. Mentors give the mentee advice and insight into the real world, so that they can be ready for the challenges that lay ahead.
A mentor can help assess the strengths and weaknesses of the mentee as well as develop their skills for success. Mentors have been there and know the struggles that lay ahead. Mentors are there to help the mentee navigate through these struggles and help provide a fresh perspective--a new way of looking at a problem or issue.
A mentor has the potential to be more than just an adviser but a coach--one in which the mentor facilitates the decision-making process by suggesting alternatives rather than telling the mentee what to do. Mentors are there to motivate the mentee to do their best work.
