In this episode, we discuss:
-What is mentorship?
-Work and life time management trade-offs
-Some of Greg’s most challenging and rewarding experiences as a mentor
-Top qualities a mentor should possess
-And so much more!
With every decision you make, there will be other opportunities affected as Greg reminds, “Whatever you say yes to, you’re saying no to something else.”
Having been a mentor for hundreds of people, Greg has found that, “It’s amazing what happens when people jump.”
One of the most important qualities of a mentor is being a great listener because, “A mentor doesn’t tell people what to do.” Greg stresses, “If you can’t listen, then you will be really ineffective in your mentorship.”
