How to Benefit From Having a Mentor

Posted By Alice C. Linsley, Sunday, March 02, 2014

The Well recently posted this article on the value and importance of mentors. Kelly Aukema, Dorothy Boorse and Kay Fritsch share their experiences with mentoring and talk about how advisees can benefit from the relationship.
