Being a Mentor is one of the most fulfilling aspects of leadership. When we think back to the most influential people in our lives, most often it is the people or person that took the time to believe in us, motivate us, challenge us and develop us. It starts from that one teacher, coach, spiritual leader, parent, boss or friend.
As Zig Ziglar famously said, “A lot of people have gone further than they thought they could because someone else thought they could.”
Often times during my career at Famous, when I had to make a decision I would seek the advice of our President and CEO, Marc Blaushild. He would almost always ask me “what are the options?” and then “what would you do if this were your company?”
This style of mentoring, asking questions, creating empowerment, building confidence, giving ownership, and encouraging creative thinking has created a culture within Famous that cultivates a sense of ownership. The confidence and trust enables Associates to reach their highest potential.
I would also have to say John Palermo acts as a mentor to many. His office constantly has people in there bouncing ideas and different situations off of him. One reason for this is his style of problem solving without passing judgment. Whether there is an idea or problem, you know you’re going to leave his office with a plan, or the foundation to come up with one.
I believe we are all mentors and students for life. Behind every successful person and idea is a group of mentors that helped take things to the next level.
The most important thing I have learned over the years is to create a network of mentors – people that you can continuously look to for guidance and growth both personally and professionally. Reciprocate and be a mentor to others. We all have unique experiences, talents and knowledge that can be shared with others.
