Networking with a supportive culture for business can be incredibly beneficial for entrepreneurs and business owners. When you are part of a networking community that is supportive, you have access to a range of resources and support that can help you to grow your business and succeed.
One particular benefit that could go unnoticed is the amount of access to mentorship within a supportive group. This can be invaluable for new entrepreneurs and those undergoing disruptive change in their industries who may be looking for guidance and support as they navigate the challenges of starting a new business or navigating a diffifcult terrain.
What does this mean for companies and organizations when their employees have the benefits of mentorship?
In my case, having this guidance and advice allowed me to take on career opportunities that I otherwise may not have. My confidence soared, and my goals found clarity. And that meant my organization at that time was able to harness my talent most effectively and translate that into deepening partnership engagement—I sustained two economic depressions longer and contributed more.
The benefits of mentorship are not confined to mentees only. Now that I mentor, I find incredible value in developing my leadership and management skills and applying insights to my organizational relationships. These insights stem from discussions with my various mentees around priorities, decision-making, alternate and unorthodox solutions, etc. Having mentees has been wonderful and instrumental in keeping me focused in different ways.
Short transcript from Mel Fisher, CEO, BforB International
Mentorship also lends a voice to many who, on their own, are not able to traverse the journey. Having a wide variety of voices around the table at BforB is extremely beneficial to running any business, organization or project, because it brings different solutions and perspectives that translate toward direct success and, in turn, result in a positive cascading effect.
