January is National Mentoring Month, and this is a great time to meet with your mentor or mentors. Mentors are those who generously listen to what you want to do and share their experiences on how they’ve done something in their careers. They provide an outside perspective and can be a fantastic sounding board when you’re considering options. Mentors can provide advice on career development, promotions, and goals.

How can I learn to do this?” Mentoring resources are plentiful. Here’s an article with lots of helpful information. Enjoy! https://hbr.org/2022/01/the-best-mentorships-help-both-people-grow
