Have you hit the “glass ceiling” so many times, it feels as if the top of your head is flat? Has your journey through the executive ranks seem to have stalled out? Are your dedication and hard work going unrewarded? Are you feeling underappreciated or misunderstood in the workplace? If so…welcome to The Club!

“This is THE place, where like-minded, executive-minded, forward-thinking women come to communicate—collaborate—and celebrate everything that it means to be a career-focused woman in a male-dominated work environment. This isn’t about ‘us vs. them.’ This is about us making a name for ourselves—taking a seat, and truly owning that seat, at the executive table—and doing so not as ‘clones’ of men, but as authentic, self-confident, self-empowered women.”

10 Awesome Reasons for Hiring a Mentor

No longer are professional career mentors just for the elite. In fact it’s actually considered a great strategy for anyone, especially for those wanting to get ahead much faster. It’s a bit like a personal trainer but for your work fitness – consistency, accountability and with an end goal. In fact, in the gender diversity space mentors for women are part of a recommended strategy to help keep women focused on career progression, “leaning in” and leadership pipelines.

In order to find a mentor, you could ask a senior person in your circle of influence to mentor you for free. Or in the absence of a senior person, you could pay for a mentor. Why not consider a combination of the both? And one of the big benefits of the paid mentor over a free mentor is that the paid mentor’s first priority is you.

So to help you make your mind up about whether or not Ambition Revolution mentoring is for you here are my top 10 reasons why you could and should have a mentor.

1. You’ll end up working on a program tailored to suit your exact requirements. Your program will be a combination of practical, tactical and strategic – blending long term goals with short term strategies and vice versa.

2. You have someone to hold you accountable, to check up on you and give you a nudge when you need.

3. You have someone to bounce ideas off – who doesn’t have a vested interest in anything other than your results. Plus they won’t mind if your ideas are wobbly or only half formed. You get to try out all your worst ideas outside of the office in a safe environment. Your executive team will simply get to see the finished product.

4. You get someone to keep you motivated and get you through dips and slumps, keeping you focused on the end game and reminding you how far you’ve come so far.

5. You have someone to keep you confident and feeling self assured. Did you know that when it comes to success, confidence correlates at least as closely to confidence as competence?

“Evidence shows that women are less self-assured than men—and that to succeed, confidence matters as much as competence.”

— Katty Kay & Claire Shipman

6. Your commitment is only one hour per fortnight – with tactical, specific homework on your career strategy between sessions (not some random case study).

7. You’ll have someone to help you focus. As you’ve probably heard about with recent research into the flow state – there is an amazing correlation between flow, focus and results and a quite telling inverse correlation between focus and effort. So here’s the thing. When focus increases? Perceived effort seems to fall. You find yourself in the zone and work becomes more meaningful and you become happier. Want to learn more about flow?

8. Wisdom and guidance from someone who has been there or at the very least has other clients working through the same issues.

9. You’ll feel like you are growing and developing even though the focus is on your work. Work on your career will have never felt so much like fun!

10. You’ll feel like you have more time left in your week to focus on all the other things that are also important – friends, family and wellness.  We’ve all heard that old maxim that when we are lying on our death bed we’re not going to say “I wish I spent more time at the office”.
