WXN Breakfast Event: The Power of Mentorship
When you have a mentor, you have the ultimate head start: someone who has already been where you’ve been. You get to learn from their successes, and—perhaps even more valuable—you can study the failures they’ve had the time and wisdom to reflect on, understanding where it all went wrong. They can help you identify your strengths, areas you need to work on, determine what direction you want your career to go in and create a plan to get on that path.
On the other hand, taking on the role of a mentor can infuse your current role with new purpose, knowing you are instilling confidence in the next generation of leaders. Plus, there is always the opportunity for cross-mentorship—everyone has something important to teach us, regardless of age or stage. Simply put, the value and power of mentorship is immeasurable.
Join us for an exciting event in Richmond Hill, where we’ll take a deeper look at mentorship, hearing from entrepreneur Lisa Patel, Owner and CEO of The Property Princess, Published Author, Public Speaker and Mentor at Futurpreneur Canada and her mentor Chris Slightham, President & CEO, Royal LePage Signature Realty. Lisa will delve into her story and, during an interactive Q&A with mentor Chris, tackle important questions you need to know: How can you go about identifying what you specifically need in a mentor and then find that person? Why are women less likely to seek mentors, yet offer themselves as mentors? What is the relevance of male mentors and how is allyship between the genders a key element of progress?
