Mentors Are Important: Learn to communicate effectively with Magnovo’s Tips Tuesdays series

How important are mentors? I think it is essential if you want to be a better person, a more effective communicator, improve as a leader – having a mentor is key!And it doesn’t matter in what aspect of your life (personal or professional) that you have one.

I remember when I was in college, I painted houses for the summer and I worked for a gentleman named Lyn White. Lyn was one of the greatest mentors I ever had. He was a college graduate, a great speaker with terrific presence. Lyn loved painting.

One of the things he shared with me and that I’ll always remember is ‘when you do something, do it to the best of your abilities’. Put your heart and soul into it. When I was painting houses, just putting a simple coat of paint on a wall – if I did it with excellence – I had pride in it when I was done.

And it was his mentoring and teaching me the importance of taking pride in everything and giving my all that made a difference. So if you do not already have a mentor – find one!
