Building Trust

What is this thing called trust? Sometimes trust is defined as knowing what to expect from another person, or predictability. And predictability does play into trust, but if that's it, well, then we would trust the person who walks into work every day, and at exactly 10:05 every day punches us. Well, no. Predictability alone is not enough to create trust. Trust is also about my belief that you have my best interest in mind.

Becoming A Good Mentor

Why should you care about being a great mentor? Because mentoring matters. Research shows that those who have mentors and serve as mentors actually make more money than those who are not involved in mentoring. Mentors tend to be more engaged in their jobs and get more promotions than those who are not mentors. Most importantly, those who serve as mentors report gaining tremendous joy from their relationships with their protégés.
