How Will You Grow?
Mentoring provides an opportunity to facilitate personal and professional growth by sharing knowledge learned through life experiences. While the primary intent of the SSP mentor role is to challenge the protégé to think in new and different ways, the protégé is not the only one who gains from the arrangement. Mentors benefit as well.
Mentoring allows for strengthening coaching and leadership skills by working with individuals from different backgrounds and with different personality types.
SSP mentors create a legacy that has a lasting impact. Not only do they gain the satisfaction of helping to develop future talent, the knowledge fostered in protégés inspire new ideas for generations to come. Furthermore, through mentoring, mentors help carry on an SSP legacy by passing on its values.
