I’m really liking the idea that teach-ability is a quality of a true leader.
I’ve noticed that those students who exhibit a desire to learn and a willingness to seek and respond to suggestions from others really accelerate the rate at which they improve.
I think this is important in any position, but it seems to be especially important in a mentoring position.
Mentors need to be pros at seeking and responding to feedback.
We need to be able to seek it from our employers and supervisors, as well as from our mentees.
Making this behavior a part of ourselves truly creates real leadership.
