Keep on thinking, keep on challenging
You know your business, you know your market and you know your customers. You want to give customers the best offering of your service or product, and to do that you have to adapt, respond and make strategies for the future. They are your decisions and its your risk. These decisions need to be validated, agreed, and shared across the organisation. They then need to be implemented to achieve the intended result.
Mentoring allows you the opportunity to challenge your assumptions and question your decisions. To consider new approaches or resort to the established. A leader always needs to reflect and foster their imagination. The role of a mentor allows you step back a see all that is around you.
