6 Habits of Highly Effective Mentors
By: Jump Start, Inc.

This article presents some important aspects of effective mentoring. One highlight is when the Harvard Business Review states, "Mentoring can take many shapes and forms -the key is to find the right kind of advice from the right person at the right time." This is critical since we all find ourselves limited by our full schedules and long list of commitments. Therefore, finding the right mentor (at the right time) is the only way mentoring will work today. The image from the past of a life-time mentor that sticks with us for years is no longer realistic. That's why TaxTalent's Mentor Program was designed as "on-demand" mentoring to address a specific issue at a specific time by a mentor that has the exact expertise needed. --Eve Abrams, Mentor Program Director
