Rules of Engagement For Mentors

As busy professionals, we’re asked to participate in hundreds of committees, organizations, meetings, phone calls, and social events each month. Many of us want to say “yes” to all of them – especially the ones that have the potential to do good, like mentoring. Unfortunately, as the leaders of our organizations, our time is limited, and we often end up committing to more than we can actually attend.
