Who is your mentor in Project Management? How has your mentor helped you?
I am interested in finding a mentor and wondered if others have found mentoring helpful?

Professionally, a good mentor is hard to find. A coach is not a mentor.

Personally, mentor can be anyone, your family or your friend. Someone who really cares, and is concerned of your long-term growth.

Anupam, you did a great point. There are some people that use both roles as the same, and that's true, there aren't.

Hello Lori, my Project Mentors were professionals who helped me understand the human, social and strategic relationships in each company where I worked, not necessarily giving me technical knowledge, but teachings of Leadership and Strategy.
Hi Lori, because of my background I have found both beneficial. Mentors are definitely important and needed for growth. I would definitely recommend joining your local PMI Chapter as well.
