Economic uncertainties fuel an unstable job market and create an unsettling environment in the workplace. The lack of transparency, internal politics, the growing number of siloed departments and hidden agendas have made it more difficult to trust yourself, let alone others – which makes it more difficult to know when a mentor is good for you. What appears to be an endless path of disorganized chaos is now “the new normal.” As such, we must become mentally tough and learn to anticipate the unexpected. Employees must approach the workplace through a lens that can detect the potholes of distrust while staying focused on seeing and seizing the next opportunity. Finding the right formula for knowing when your mentor is good for you can be subjective and has a lot to do with the engagement of specific personality types and how they mesh in certain circumstances.
