“Are You My Mentor?” — Finding the Right Mentor for You

In her book, Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, characterizes the search for a mentor to that of the questioning little bird in a much-loved children’s book, asking different objects and animals the question, “Are You my Mother?”The search for a mentor can become like that, with ever-present question in the mentee’s mind, “Are you my [next] mentor?”
Finding a good mentor, one that fits you and your goals, doesn’t have to be a bewildering search.
