- The 4 types of Mentors: achievement examples, advisors, spotters, and informal mentors.
- Achievement examples are experts in whatever space you’re looking to improve in, but they’ve demonstrated that they’re successful.
- Spotters can identify areas for improvement and provide guidance to help you grow.
- Advisors offer advice and wisdom; it is essential to have advisors who know more than you.
- Informal mentors are people who wouldn’t see themselves as mentors per se, But who you learn lessons from all the time.
The Value of Allies:
- The three types of allies – supporter allies, challenger allies, and habit example allies – each play distinct roles in our personal growth.
- Supporter allies are those who encourage us.
- Challenger allies are those who push us beyond our comfort zones.
- Habit example allies are those who act as living blueprints.
- Identifying those trolls we may encounter online and offline and their potential impact on our lives.
- The ability to turn such encounters into empowering and inspiring experiences.
- Learn to see ‘trolls’ as opportunities for learning, transforming their actions into sources of empowerment.
- False antagonists are those who might seem like obstacles at first, like trolls, but can inadvertently become our allies.
