Do you ever wish upon a star hoping for answers? If so, do you ever ask yourself questions like this:
- How do I deal with a not great client?
- How do I work with someone who is outright difficult?
- How do I balance work and life better?
- Should I change jobs?
- Am I inspiring my people?
During my years in the agency business, I often had questions like these. I wished I had someone to talk to about my questions, thoughts and ideas. I wanted someone who would act as a good sounding board and would not judge me for my thinking and even my occasional bouts of insecurity.
I figured out what I wanted was a mentor – someone I respected and who got the business I was in but who wasn’t my boss. I didn’t feel comfortable being “vulnerable” in front of the person I reported to on a day-to-day basis.
the roots of bloom
I started bloom mentoring with the vision of being that person for others. After 30+ years in advertising, I know the business from the inside out. I have mentored many people over the years, both when I worked at agencies and now via bloom.
Having a mentor is not a sign of weakness, but rather of strength. It means you are willing to learn more about yourself as a person and as a professional. Mentoring is a business strategy that works on a personal level and a professional level. Congrats to you for deciding to invest in yourself!
“Since her (Kristin’s) only motivation is to improve on what’s already there, she asks questions and provides assignments that make you think about your worth, your value, your unique contributions and how you present those to others around you. She then provides the framework for you to work out for yourself how to get comfortable presenting yourself and managing your ideas and at the same time, keep your true essence and experiences in tact, while still taking into account how others perceive you and how they take in information. She motivated me to change because she showed me how it would benefit me.”
