I currently have internal mentors, but by far, have found the most value in this experience. He was an unbiased mentor where I felt my personal and career development was the only focus.
My mentor has proven again and again that is is dedicated to our mentor/mentee relationship - no only by being engaged in our standing monthly meetings - but also availing herself for phone calls, assisting me with preparation for my annual Performance Management Review, as well as providing me a book that is aligned with my professional development goals.
During the first meeting, my mentor and I made a wonderful connection. It was evident she had become familiar with my background. She was very engaged in the conversation, providing astute observations into my character that even those that have worked closely with me haven't noticed. This demonstrates Cynthia's deep experience and commitment to mentoring.
My personal experience with my mentor was "world class" and highly recommended! He created a solid foundation of trust and truly a non-threatening venue to establish ones needs and roadmap to learning. He interjected freely with his vast experience and provided great and relevant perspective to my needs.
