The benefits of becoming a mentor
Being a mentor is a rich and rewarding experience. The range of professional and personal development benefits include:
- Making a difference to a fellow CA
- Giving back to the community
- Increasing self-confidence and self-awareness
- Developing leadership skills
- Building strong communication skills
- Gaining new and different perspectives
- Growing your network
As a mentor, you have the opportunity to make a real difference to a fellow CA's career, connect with people outside your current network and broaden your perspective with alternative points of view.
For Mark Twomey CA, his mentoring relationship with Pradhima Shyamsunder CA encouraged him to reflect on his own career and found the experience beneficial for his professional and personal development.
They view their career through a different lens to my generation. It;s much more than just work for them – it's about what they value as well, and I think this attitude prompts you to question your own views on what a career can give you.
