I agree with your statement and would like to add that the first and foremost thing would be an excellent example to the mentee; there is a thin line between a good mentor and a great mentor.
- Every workplace would have some problems, and so does my workplace too. We have to face challenges in the workplace, and we have to offer ourselves problem-solving techniques to get through the issue.
- Encouraging a mentee is one of the best things as a mentor you could do. Encouraging others on their performances they had done not so well will surely help you get better together.
- Sometimes you have to confront any wrongs done by your mentee because, at times, some people may present unacceptable behavior, and you have to condemn such things and strictly warn them
- Try to explore new opportunities through your mentee. Even with good mentor support, we can push our limits and achieve things we never dream of. To conclude, those are some important techniques and strategies to overcome all the difficulties a mentor and mentees face at the workplace. I am using these techniques in my daily life. Any methods contrary to those techniques were not advisable to follow, and I would immediately stop using such strategies or techniques that show a negative result(Stephenson, Et, 2019). Thanks for sharing.
