Women have been making a name for themselves in organizations all over the world. They are taking their career goals to the next level and claiming positions they have worked very hard for. Despite this, many top positions within organizations are still held by men. Because of this, some women are shattering the mold, while others are still struggling to breakthrough. Between work-life balance and office politics, there are numerous challenges women can face in the workplace. However, there is a solution to help women get into more leadership roles – mentorship.
Here are 4 ways mentoring can benefit YOU!
1. Change Perceptions
When given the opportunity to participate in a mentoring program, women are better able to move forward in their careers. Mentoring can change the perception many women develop when their leaders do not recognize their talent. Some women then struggle with fitting in and fail to see equitable opportunities for advancement.
2. Stay Accountable for Goal Achievement
Occasionally, women will set career development goals and not hold themselves accountable. While this is a common problem for any individual, women can be more affected because of other challenges they face. Being part of a mentoring relationship can help to hold women accountable to their personal goals. It helps make career development easier and more achievable. The mentor can help women set goals and track their progress.
3. Build a Solid Network
Having a mentor can give women access to professional networks that may not have been available to them before. A mentor can introduce them to others in their profession and generally make them more visible throughout an organization. The benefits of higher visibility will continue throughout the career path.
4. Gain Confidence
It is important for women leaders to be confident in their skills and abilities. Having a mentor provides a gateway to increased confidence through improved skills and developed leadership competencies.
As a mentee, you will gain confidence. You will be more likely to own your career development paths. You will begin to push yourself to achieve these goals and move up the corporate ladder with ease!
