re: How to Find Your Mentor VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

Thanks for sharing!

I actually agree with you that someone can find a mentor anywhere. Mentorship for me is an actual talent and being a mentor doesn't necessarily mean that you have to be senior or too experienced. If you can actually understand what the "mentee" lacks in terms of knowledge, and if you're teaching them in a way they understand (by obfuscating parts that are noise to them, even if that means that you're somewhat correct, but not 100%), then you can consider yourself a mentor.

 

Thanks for your comment!

It's so true that you don't have to be that experienced to teach others. It might even be better to be "just" one level above the other person. Because then you know exactly what your "student" is missing or you understand her perspective. If you're too far away, you might not be able to empathize.
