Yes, you can do it by yourself...but without accountability, struggle and a lack of commitment pop up regularly. I truly believe that individuals that recruit a mentor/coach are serious about getting to the next level professionally and personally. Studies show that people who have the structure, accountability and support from a mentor/coach are generally more successful and complete their goals.
In this article, I share tips for choosing a mentor for 2010 that will help accomplish your goals for 2010.
In most cases, a mentor has accomplished a certain level of success that you aspire to reach...this allows you to stay motivated, inspired and educated.
It's really beneficial to you if your mentor has a system or program in place. Making it up as you go along can work in some situations but professional systems get results.
The connection is really important. You need to be able to share the good, bad and ugly with your mentor. It helps to have a good rapport and enjoy communicating with them.
Does your mentor have a mentor? It's important that mentors have someone to hold them accountable. (I call this walking the talk.)
Your mentor needs to stretch you, and at times, make you feel a little uncomfortable. This means challenging you to be your best and pushing you beyond your comfort level.
