Over the years I’ve had the opportunity to mentor some amazing people. I’ve come to truly appreciate the honor it is to not only coach them but to watch them tap into their own potential and grow into respected professionals. My personal leadership philosophy has always been to help people realize their true potential and motivate them toward that. I guess it’s the gardener in me. I enjoy watching things grow. If you’re ever asked to be someone’s mentor, I highly recommend you accept the request. It’s a high honor.
