Having a mentor to look up to and give you direction in your career is a vital part of being a new professional.
But – what would happen if you had multiple mentors to look to for advice? According to Harvard Business Review, connecting with peers and mentors is more beneficial to your career than having just one mentor.
The chief distinction between finding “a mentor” and creating “a mentor board of directors” is that there is less pressure to find one person who represents your ideal future self. You can diversify your search criteria and learn from a variety of people. This also allows you to look beyond the classic notion of a mentor as someone who is older and wiser than you.
