“A mentor is someone who allows you to see the hope inside yourself.” - Oprah Winfrey
Consider your workplace. Was there someone who helped you get started in your career? Perhaps at school, a teacher guided you through a difficult subject.
These are just two examples of mentors. Mentors are everywhere, and Riverside Communicators is no exception.
Mentoring at Riverside supports our members to help each other to develop their public speaking and leadership skills.
What does a mentor do?
As role model, coach and confidante, they may help in a number of ways, depending on the type of support you are looking for. They may:
Motivate and encourage you to focus on your goals and become successful
Share their own knowledge and experience of public speaking and leadership
Listen and provide feedback for practice speeches
Provide constructive feedback from participation in Club meetings
Regularly monitor and follow up on progress towards goals and aspirations
