About the Mentor Myth
Cut through the white noise surrounding “mentorship,” the professional world’s latest buzzword.
Professionals entering and re-entering the job market are constantly told that they need mentors to advance their career, yet most people who identify as mentors aren’t qualified to teach or guide others. As a matter of fact, untrained mentors can actually impede career progress.
The Mentor Myth teaches entrepreneurs, executives, and aspiring professionals exactly how to advance their careers independently. Even the best mentors have human flaws like everybody else, which means that you cannot afford to take their advice as infallible truth. As Debby notes in the book, a mentor nearly stunted her career by offering harmful advice!
Know the difference between a mentor that helps you to grow, and older professionals who undermine your career development. Learn to weigh your own opinions and intuitions against the advice of mentors who—statistically—may not even understand the current job markets as well as you do.
