If you’re thinking of advancing your career or your people, you’ve probably heard the phrase, “You need a mentor to guide you; You need a mentor to help you achieve this and that...”. True enough, one needs a mentor to help them with decision making in their business and career endeavors and to foster their skills.

The demand for mentors is high, but the supply is low. In a survey conducted by our guest, Reshama Shaikh, she found out that 90% are looking to have a mentor for their business. But where can you find the right mentor to guide you or your people? 

In this episode, we’re talking about mentoring with Reshama Shaikh. Reshama is an independent data scientist and statistician. She consults in the areas of data science, statistics, diversity, mentoring, and community building.

Reshama will explain some of the dos and don’ts of mentoring. She also shares the mentoring survey that she did and what mentoring means to different people, where to find the best mentors, and how you can start walking down the path of a mentor!
