Lewis on mentorship

Serving as a mentor is rewarding in several ways - tracking the career development and successes of individuals I've worked with, opening up their perspectives on career and life choices, and of course learning as much from my mentees as they learn from me.

Some topics I'm excited to mentor students in include:

  • Understanding what motivates them in their careers
  • Finding the right culture fit in their next job
  • Approach to interviewing
  • Building teams
  • The importance of alignment
  • Any other topics that they bring forward

Favorite book

There are many valuable business books - a couple of my favorites are "The Hard Thing About Hard Things" (Ben Horowitz) and "The Advantage" (Patrick Lencioni); for fiction I've enjoyed Matthew Pearl's historical novels ("The Dante Club", "The Poe Shadow" and others) and "Shantaram: A Novel" (Gregory David Roberts)
