“If you ask most smart or successful people where they learned their craft, they will not talk to you about their time in school. It’s always a mentor, a particularly transformative job, or a period of experimentation or trial and error.” – Ryan Holiday
This year I am focusing on everyday leaders. Not those who hold a formal position of authority, but those of us who, through our behaviors, have the ability to influence and inspire those around us just by being us. This is the sixth installment of articles that focus on one specific behavior that can make a huge difference in our ability to impact the lives of others.
This month I want to talk about mentorship. What does mentorship have to do with being an everyday leader? Everyday leaders share their knowledge and experience with others. Their support makes a difference to those who associate with them. So, what does mentorship look like in everyday leadership?
When you share your knowledge and experience with others, you become a mentor. Mentorship is a great example of everyday leadership. Investing in the growth of others is one of the foundational responsibilities of leadership. When you mentor others, you help them grow.
Everyone need to know that someone is standing by him or her. Mentors provide support and encouragement to others. When you support others, you gain the ability to inspire and influence others, which makes you an everyday leader.
You mentor others through the example that they see you set. Whether than not you realize it, someone is always watching. When you set a positive example for others to follow, you become an everyday leader.
Everyday leaders are happy to share their knowledge and experience to benefit others. They offer the encouragement and support that earns them the trust and respect of others. They keep in mind that someone is always watching and set a positive example that is worth following. Through the value they place on helping others grow, everyday leaders make an impact on the lives of those around them.
