This grave mentor mistake was a disservice to my career
I’ve had a lot of mentors in my career and I’ve realized that I favor advisers who are positive, cheerleader-types. I haven’t found a tough talker who really voices his/her experiences in a brutally honest way. In a way, the cheerleader type gives me a confidence boost but now that I’m becoming a mentor myself, I also think it’s a disservice to not take the hard conversation route more often than not. Curious, what kind of mentors do you prefer? And/or what kind of mentor are you? Do you prefer a cheerleader or a tough talker?
