Having mentors inside and outside the business you are in, is one of the keys to a succesful career.
Once you have secured a mentor, here are the three things you need to do:
1. Schedule your session monthly, bi- monthly with your mentor(whatever you have agreed), Don’t wait for your mentor to do it, as they are usually senior people with conflicting priorities.
2. Be prepared for your session. What have you achieved since your last meeting with your mentor? what did you implement and how did that work for you? What is challenging you? What are your goals? What obstacles are there in achieving your goals?
3. Summarise your actions in the meeting or call and follow up with an email promptly.
