The role of a mentor is to: Help build your self-reliance and leadership skills. Help you discover your own insights, abilities, and solutions. (1)
There may be many of us who think we could benefit from having a mentor but how to find one? A good start is to be clear about what it is you require, a business mentor, a sporting mentor, health related mentorship or a general life coach mentor. It is important to try and clarify to yourself what it is you personally want to achieve before approaching a possible organisation or candidate.
If it is a business or professional mentor you require, some of the many options include:

A wonderful example of the benefits to both the mentor and the mentee is shown in the story of Madison and Cormac: CLICK HERE
Madison is an 800m Paralympic Gold medal champion and Cormac is a young person with big dreams to follow in her footsteps and become a world champion wheelchair racer and represent Australia at the Paralympics. Their connection was forged through a Mentor Clinic in Sydney that matches younger athletes with older international athletes.
In fact, the benefits of being mentored are many, including gaining practical advice, learning from others experience, increased social confidence, and being empowered to make your own decisions and develop your own strategies for dealing with professional and personal issues while keeping your goals on track.
There are individuals and programs who are just waiting to be matched with you and are trained and ready to guide and assist you to achieve your dreams and aspirations.
