Have You Missed a Good Opportunity?

A new year is always a good time to reflect on your experiences as a mentee, both with your current mentor(s) and other people who helped you develop in the past. Did you miss any opportunities?

The Mentoring Group’s Suggested Responses

Of course, hindsight and looking at other mentees’ wrong turns is always easier than handling our own real-time situations! We hope these glimpses have been helpful to you as you think over your experiences of the past year and make your plans for the new one.
