From interviewing people from all walks of life on the What I Know Now podcast, I want to share with you what I have learned from my guests by answering any questions you have about personal development, networking and building meaningful relationships. The aim of Ask Mark is to help you achieve your goals sooner and help you stand on the shoulders of giants.
I love hearing from my listeners. If you would like to get involved and have your question featured on the show, please leave your question in the comments box or drop me a message on social media in the links below.
Now sit back, plug in those headphones and enjoy because it is time to learn together about personal development, networking, building meaningful relationships and so much more.
In today’s episode of Ask Mark, I answer a listener’s question to how to stop wasting time with your mentor by offering four characteristics that are vital when building a successful relationship with them.
The first thing you need to have in your mentor relationship is intimacy or vulnerability. Be open and have honest conversations with them. Tell them exactly how you feel.
The second tip is generosity. Both parties want to have to give to each other such as time, effort and resources to help you achieve your goals.
You need to have candour. Nothing is more corrosive to another person’s success than conflict avoidance so you must give 100% honest feedback.
Finally, you must have accountability. If you don’t follow up on something you set out to do, you need someone to kick you in the ass and push you to achieve your goals.
