What’s the most important aspect of mentoring?

While we as mentors are anxious to give advice, I believe that the most important aspect of mentoring is intent listening, asking thought-provoking questions, and assisting the mentee in critically thinking through and arriving at a solution or plan on their own.

 

Best trick for maintaining the personal-professional life balance?

While I’ve never been that successful at “balancing,” my goal is to constantly prioritize professional and personal demands. The key for me is planning ahead and being well-organized. Rising two and a half hours before I leave my home gives me time to relax and plan my day, enjoy some “me-time,” complete any family prep work and organize my schedule for both the day and evening.

 

Your favorite trick for unwinding?

My favorite trick for unwinding is spending time listening to music with my college-student sons. They expose me to their millennial music, I share my old-school Rock and Roll and R&B music with them. We all share a love of  music, and can engage in this activity for hours.
