We start our next interview with a discussion about informal mentoring with Chip Nightingale. There are many formal mentoring options out there for you. However, some of the best ways to advance your career are to look to the informal ones that are available in your daily life. Your coworkers, leads, and even your boss can provide you with mentoring that is invaluable to your career.

Informal Mentoring Happens Every Day

There are people in our work and personal lives that pour into us and help us grow. We can look at this as informal mentoring and all it costs is our time and attention. Better yet, we can develop our mentoring skills and help build our teams through mentoring those that are newer than us. That may be those new to the career, the company, or just the team. There are countless opportunities for us to grow and also to help others do the same.
