For me, one of the greatest benefits that IAIP offers is being able to connect with other members. Like a big family where we can share our knowledge, experiences, and skills. It is like having a key to a door that will lead you to a great transformation. And that key is mentoring.

Mentoring can be defined as a relationship in which an individual receives support for his or her personal development of someone with attributes to which you aspire.

In the mentoring process there are the following elements:

  • Connection – There is a “click” between the mentor and the mentee. A relationship of respect, honesty, and genuine concern for personal development.
  • Expectation – Be clear on what you want to achieve.
  • Support – Your mentor will be of service to you. Achieving in the process: help, assistance, education to discover everything you are capable of.
  • Conclusion – What happens next? You’re ready for a new experience! You will have the opportunity to expose yourself to other mentors for further development or expertise and you can even be a mentor for someone else.

Go ahead and approach that member you want to learn from, make the connection and start your transformation.
