Mentoring relationships have the potential to lead to lasting and positive changes for both people involved, helping them build and strengthen personal brands, leadership and business ethics. If you’ve already had the opportunity to blaze a trail as a leader you have likely built solid relationships along the way—relationships that can be enhanced as a sponsor as well.
A mentor guides and advises. A sponsor elevates and champions others behind closed doors and might also be the one to say “yes!” and make the hiring or buying call. Sponsorship puts people front and center, building engagement and increasing confidence. According to many research studies, this strategy results in significant promotion for both parties.
