Exploring career mentoring and coaching

6 Summary

By now, you should have a better understanding of what a mentor could do for you and how to find one. You’ve also considered what you could offer if you became a mentor yourself.

You should now be able to:

  • identify the goals and objectives that a mentor can help you with
  • find the right mentor for your needs
  • describe how you might become a mentor yourself.

Next week, you’ll change your focus to career coaching, investigating what it is and why it works, and looking at some of the most common coaching approaches that are used in that context.
