There are many benefits to being a mentor; one of them being an improvement in your communication skills. Here are some ways that being a mentor can do just that:
Flexibility. Because you become so close with your mentee, you can try out different tactics and see how well they work. With a large group, you must have your tools refined and ready to go at the time of your interaction.
Personal level. This may seem basic, but your personal communication skills will improve dramatically. Interacting with your mentor on a personal level will allow you to improve your interpersonal skills at a significant rate. This will pay off for you in the end.
Growth. The great thing about being a mentor is that you can see your mentee’s growth from beginning to end. It is a powerful thing to be a part of someone’s growth and have a front row seat to their success.
