I highly value receiving Adam Grant's monthly updates.
One article he referred to this month was this one about one of his mentors Jeff Zaslow who taught him the following 4 timeless truths:
1. Great mentors don’t give answers. They ask questions.
2. Great mentors are proactive, not reactive. They don’t just respond to outreach; they reach out to their mentees.
3. Great mentors see more potential in their mentees than their mentees see in themselves.
4. Great mentors focus on their mentees’ success, not on their own.
These very much reflect my beliefs about meaningful mentoring. You?
