Everyone, at one point or another in their career, is faced with
a tricky situation, or challenging issue which we
simply can't deal with alone. We may well have friends or
other trusted advisors we can turn to. But sometimes we may
need a completely fresh angle, with perspective from someone
who is more experienced and wiser and who has seen this kind of
thing before. And that someone could be a mentor, or a coach.
If we had a magic wand, we'd love for ALL professional women to
have a mentor, or occasional access to a professional coach.
The two aren't the same, and we feel it is really important that
you are aware what each of them can deliver to you, how
they can benefit your career and what to look for in either
That's why we created this theme. Here, you'll find a wealth
of articles about these two topics. We wanted you to get
multiple perspectives so we have brought various contributors on
board. We hope there's enough here for you to decide for
yourself which would work best for you and to get going!
And... we also hope we will inspire you enough to start
mentoring someone yourself. We have no doubt that every each
and one of you has something to offer!
