Rad Idea: Consider Being a Mentor

By John Wallace

One career development opportunity for imaging professionals (and really every type of professional) is a mentorship. The Business News Daily website provides a good explanation of a mentorship.

“Mentorship is a mutually beneficial professional relationship in which an experienced individual (the mentor) imparts knowledge, expertise and wisdom to a less experienced person (the mentee), while simultaneously honing their mentoring skills. An effective mentor can professionally guide the mentee while maintaining a friendly and supportive relationship. A mentor should always have the mentee’s best interests in mind and tailor their mentorship style to meet the needs of the mentee,” an article by Matt D’Angelo explains.

The article also suggests three things individuals should keep in mind when considering a mentorship. The three items are:

  • Define what you want out of your career and what you need to learn to get there.
  • Approach a mentor relationship as if it’s a business friendship – be casual and friendly, and try not to ask weird questions like, “Will you be my mentor?”
  • Start with your professional network. Individuals often already have mentors who provide advice in various ways, and all it takes is a little effort to grow that connection into an ongoing relationship.

A mentorship provides an opportunity for growth. It helps the mentee as well as the mentor develop and/or enhance different talents and strengths. Take time to look into developing a mentorship for yourself or serving as a mentor for someone else.
