On The Value of Mentoring
I choose to become a mentor because I wanted to inspire in others the sense that they can do more than they think. I always tell people never to be shy and ping me if they need to talk, sometimes it's that second set of eyes that can help accelerate your growth and get you closer to a goal.
Being a mentor means being a part of a greater community through contribution
Being a mentor was helpful in giving me additional perspective on the challenges others face. In our own careers, we only really have visibility into the challenges that we face directly; as a mentor, my own view was expanded to include others' challenges and I found this helpful.
Ever heard the phrase “you are what you eat”? Well, we have proven through empirical data that you are what you read. The My Bookshelf app is designed to share your reading habits and favorite titles with the community plus learn what others like you are reading that should be on your bookshelf!
My Bookshelf is part of the AI-powered platform behind RapidMatter which is used to help match community members with mentors, architects, developers, and more. Most importantly, it’s a powerful way to expand your knowledge and learn not just what successful people are reading, but why.
Years of research and active work in the mentoring community have led our founding team to discoveries on algorithmic approaches to increasing the success of mentoring and the mentoring relationship. RapidMatter MentorConnect is the culmination of years of anecdotal and empirical evidence which allows for more effective ways to connect and enhance the mentoring process.
