How to Mentor a Team: Lessons from Experienced Team Mentors
by Chris Danek
Team mentoring is a powerful way for experienced professionals to guide a team toward shared growth and success. If you’re a team mentor or want to build a team mentoring program at your organization, how can you empower your teams?
We asked two long-time mentors, Rosa Cassidy and Carrie Maslen for their advice for team mentors.
Rosa Cassidy has learned that mentoring a team is about understanding each person’s unique personality — and where the team wants to go together. Once you understand those personalities and relationships, you can help them reach their goals.
The best mentors have a special superpower: Empathy. Empathetic mentors help teams learn, grow, and challenge themselves.
Carrie Maslen also focuses on bringing teams together. She helps teams build their culture and dynamics. She asks: Are you building a shared vision? Is everyone united? Who do you need to bring along?
