We are happy to present the fourth in our series of guest blogs…

The bloggers will be giving you glimpse into their personal mentor/mentee experiences. Some spotlighted relationships may have grown into deep personal friendships, while others might be purely business in nature–mentees observing their mentor at work. No matter the depth of the relationship, mentees will testify to the importance of their mentors. Guest blog posts will appear, sporadically, but always on a Tuesday.

We are happy to present the third in our series of guest bloggers…

The bloggers will be giving you a glimpse into their personal mentor/mentee experiences. Some spotlighted relationships may have grown into deep personal friendships, while others might be purely business in nature–mentees observing their mentor at work. No matter the depth, both mentors and mentees testify to the importance of their relationship. Guest blog posts will appear, sporadically, but always on a Tuesday.

A Great Gift

Posted by Judy Anne Cavey on Dec 26, 2011 in , , | No Comments

It’s the time of year when people are given gifts. Here’s one gift meant to be cherished.

If you happen to be a fortunate person, then at some point in your life a gift was given that didn’t come from a mall, wrapped in shiny paper, or topped with a bright bow. The gift I’m referring to is one not everybody receives. It also might go unrecognized or unappreciated. It’s a gift one cannot put a value on, but it’s valuable, very valuable.

Mentees–Become More Strategic

Mentees are encouraged to be less “tactical” and more “strategic” at work.

In the article Tips for Mentees, The Mentoring Group, by Linda Phillips-Jones, Ph.D., she discusses why some mentees are being told to become less tactical and more strategic in the workplace.

According to Ms. Phillips-Jones, “…strategic refers to the “what and why” and tactical refers to the “how.” Therefore, when you’re a strategic thinker, you have the ability to see the big picture: see patterns and trends, know priorities, anticipate issues, estimate outcomes and have alternatives ready. A tactical thinker is one who has a more hands-on approach, makes sure strategic goals are on target, and performs tasks with efficiency and quality.
