In this article, HR Grapevine discusses why everyone, including leaders, should find a professional mentor to support their career progression.
In it, Michelle comments that the 'disruptive' nature of mentoring is important, saying:
“While it is important that the relationship be one of mutual respect – and where conversation and time spent together can be enjoyed – it is also very useful to be mentored by someone who works outside of your immediate industry - having a different background means that your worldview can be adapted.”
