"Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.”
-John C. Crosby, US Congress Representative

…Which questions have you struggled with about mentorship?
What’s the point of mentorship?

"What is the true value of having a mentor?” 
"What benefit do I get from being someone’s mentor?” 
How can I get real value out of mentorship?

"How do I make the most out of my mentoring relationship?” 
"I don’t really know what type of person I should be looking for to serve as my mentor. How do I find one that is most suitable for me?” 
How do I make mentorship work in practice?

"I have a mentor who I think is really suited well for me, but s/he is so busy that I have not been able to get what I need from this mentorship. What should I do?” 
"I really want to serve as a mentor, but my schedule is so hectic that I have trouble finding time to invest in my mentee.” 
How can Ascend help me or others benefit from mentorship?

"What is the time commitment required for a mentoring program such as Ascend’s?” 
"Can I serve as both a mentor and a mentee?” 
Come find the answers to your questions at our 2009/2010 Mentoring Kickoff Event on November 18th at Ernst & Young’s office in San Francisco.
