Dr. Kashey believes that mentorship is the most collaborative platonic relationship you will ever have. A mentor doesn’t only teach you what to think, but also how to think and why you are thinking it. Studies show that when the mentor/protege relationship clicks, the protege has 200% to 400% greater levels of achievement. Through modeling, collaborating, and providing consistent feedback, a mentor plays a very important role in an individual’s life. While they are an experienced veteran in the field, they still maintain a close personal relationship with their protege and use everything they’ve learned to develop their protege as a person. The combination of knowledge via books and knowledge from experience creates something special that can be passed on.
