How to find a mentor - Zak Slayback returns to the Studio of Champ-yinz to discuss how self-directed learners of all ages can build a "Cabinet of Models" to propel their professional growth. This cabinet includes teachers, advisors, and mentors.
Early in the show we'll make the distinction between teachers, advisors and mentors, outline the desirable attributes of each, how long each relationship should last, the type of knowledge and benefit you should seek from each, and the weight to give their advice in the context of your larger goals and plans.
Later we'll focus in on how to find a mentor. Zak has gone through this process himself, building a strong relationship with Isaac Morehouse of Praxis that helped him launch his career. Zak advises an understanding of opportunity cost - looking for busy people, identifying tasks that aren’t worth their time but are worth your time. We'll also discuss some strategies to bring value to these people when making introductions.
