What is a mentor?
A mentor is a person, colleague or friend who guides a less experienced person by building trust and modeling positive behaviors. An effective mentor understands that his or her role is to be dependable, engaged, authentic, and tuned into the needs of the mentee.
Being a true leader and/or mentor is making your presence last even when you are absent; it’s passing your experience and knowledge to the next generation who will pass it on to the generation after that and so on. Here at The First String Healthcare we truly believe in leaving a legacy that will continue to bring success from daily challenges in the healthcare industry. We strive to provide guidance and knowledge to current and upcoming leaders from our experienced executives so that the healthcare industry continues to thrive with postive outcomes and we continue to build a legacy that each generation moving forward can benefit from.
Today we are watching a hall of famer in the making in the young Mike Trout, someone who is already better beyond his years, but yet knows the importance of utilizing a mentor like fellow greatness, Albert Pujols. Albert Pujols is the ultimate mentor to Mike Trout, passing along what he was taught by the greats in his day. He couldn’t have said it any better than he did in this video:
“Yeah it’s great to have a great career, but at the end of the day what is the legacy that you leave behind….and that’s my goal, that’s my goal whether its a young guy or a veteran, I want to help those guys out.”
