Mentorships are an indispensable part of the entrepreneurial culture in Tunis and the world.
Finding wise and influential mentors who specialize in any given field is an excellent way to set oneself for success while bringing ideas to fruition. And if you have the expertise and knowledge, you can boost your own growth, as well as helping others achieve theirs, by becoming a mentor. You’ll learn as much from your mentees as they’ll learn from you.
The community we formed at BIATLABS rests on the principles of cooperation, reciprocity, and learning. We wish to foster an environment in which everyone helps each other on their entrepreneurial journey.
What is Mentorship?
Mentorship is a professional relationship between two individuals where the entrepreneur with more knowledge, expertise, and connections passes what they learned to the more junior one. The first person is called a mentor, and the other is the mentee.
What Do You Need To Become A Mentor?
To become a mentor, you need the experience learned from years of practice and discovery in the field you are mentoring someone in. You also need to have excellent people skills and the ability to connect on an individual level. Knowing when to listen and when to teach is an invaluable skill as well.
More importantly, mentorships aren’t a one-way street. It may not be your intention when deciding to become a mentor, but you will find yourself learning as much as teaching.
Why is Mentorship Important?
There are endless benefits associated with mentorship, both for the mentor and the mentee. The relationship paves the way for growth and success for everyone involved.
Here are some of the best benefits of mentorship :
