In the 5 years I’ve worked at IBM and been tracking it I’ve helped contribute to the hiring placement or promotion of 22+ talented folks in product. I’m more proud of that than anything else I may have done in that time. I’ve found that mentorship is a continuous activity for me. Its something I kinda cant help but do. I also get a lot of fulfillment from doing it. And it yields results!
And here’s the customize-able mentoring template as a Google Doc, enjoy!
