Mentoring: The Ideal Mentor, a Special FOCUS Sidebar

What do Martha Stewart, Tony Robbins, Steve Jobs and the fictional TV character MacGuyver have in common? They’re all great candidates for corporate mentors.

Perhaps we should explain.

The Fall 2013 issue of SPBT’s FOCUS magazine is coming later this month and includes a brand-new Member Solutions feature that turns to SPBT members to share best practices, experiences and advice. For the first issue of the new Focus feature, we share with you some mentoring tips that will help you find the right guide for your professional journey.

You don’t have to wait to get started. In advance of the upcoming magazine, we’re sharing an article in the October 2013 issue of Bonus FOCUS, with SPBT members listing their ideal mentors. Check it out, and be sure to share your thoughts on mentoring, and your ideas for the ideal mentor.
