Mentors Are Good. Sponsors Are Better.

Lately, I have been tweeting about articles I find worthy of reading, however, I thought the article by Sylvia Ann Hewlett in Sunday’s New York Times (April 14, 2013) “Mentors Are Good. Sponsors Are Better.” was simply too good to miss!! In it, Ms Hewlett clearly describes the difference between a mentor and a sponsor. I believe it is important to understand the difference between them and how each of them can impact your career success. Here is the link; I encourage you to read the article and pass it on!!
