Good leaders can connect with their staff, set priorities, drive things forward and make a compelling case for resources.
All these things depend less on specific skills and more on overall mindset, confidence and approach. That’s what sets great leaders apart from the rest.
An ongoing relationship with a mentor helps a leader unlock these traits within themselves by talking through issues, getting specific advice, or even just getting a bit of insight from an external sounding board.
And this has real benefits for their organisations. Mentored leaders are more effective at getting things done and inspiring their staff. They’re less likely to move on, because they can make a real difference in their role. They go on to be great mentors themselves, passing the benefits of mentoring down the chain.
