When two equally strong and valuable business initiatives collide, sometimes the result is disaster. Oppositional forces can bring out the best in an organization – even if the initial desired outcome isn’t achieved, the tension alone delivers a learning experience for all parties concerned.
Moments in business when two forces collide to create a natural complement to one another, like the case for coworking and mentorship, have the capacity to transform everyone involved.
As the “Can Do Capital of the World,” Seattle is a rich hub for fierce talent, entrepreneurship, and shared learning around business and career-building. Where else can you find like minds with shared interests who can also help you see things from a different perspective?
Insights for finding the right mentor
- Experience is relative
Take comfort and exercise humility with the understanding that someone else has done what you want to do and succeeded. Others have failed. Find people whose experience can inform your path to greatness.
- Remember your Number One priority
Outside of yourself, who’s looking out for you and your career? Who can help you get where you want to go? The right mentor is out there, you just have to know where to look.
- Don’t be afraid to step outside for fresh air
Where do the top minds and experts in your field congregate? What about other fields? Look for spaces and events that are open to a wide audience (like this one). This will help increase your chances of making an important new connection, learning something you didn’t know, or uncovering new opportunities for professional development and growth.
