Great mentors provide just the right advice or perspective to help you navigate political landmines and do so consistently, often on a moment's notice. They put your needs before their own, always willing to pick up the phone or respond to your email even if they're swamped with their own work. So why does their greatness cause potential problems for you as a mentee?
I’m in the McDonald’s drive-thru this morning and as I pull around to pay, I notice the cashier yelling from the first drive-thru window to a guy in a silver Lexus who was pulling away. Somehow he missed the whole concept of stopping at the first window to pay and was on his way straight to the second window (a real go-getter).
