Relationships can reduce stress and have been linked to overall improved health. Researchers have even shown that people with healthy social relationships have a 50 percent greater likelihood of survival. But relationships are challenging – sometimes exhausting at best. People with poor relationships are more likely to suffer from depression, and loneliness is powerful enough to weaken our immune system. ==============================================================

Benefits of having a mentor

    You’ll have someone who’s got your back

Your mentor may act as a Sponsor and sing your praises to decision-makers.

    Get focused

Do you need direction and someone to direct you professionally? This is your space to get feedback from someone external who will increase your motivation and morale.

    You’ll keep on learning

Most senior colleagues have a mentor or coach. The benefits of coaching and mentoring don’t stop as your progress. You’re never too experienced or senior up to be mentored.

    You can become a mentor, too

It feels good to nurture talent and you can pick up mentoring skills on the job, particularly with regard to leadership and communication. A mentee, coming at a problem from a different angle, can also help you to see a new perspective on the issue.
