Stephanie on mentorship

Brene Brown says, “Clear is Kind, Unclear is unkind.” And I deeply believe this pertains to our professional growth. The more we know, the more intentional we are in being curious and resourceful the more successful we can be in our space. Mentorship or more specifically, relationship building is how we grow. It is slowly becoming more clear about the space we want to learn about, and attributes and skills we need to show up as our  best selves. No matter the discipline, relationship building and sustaining are key to a fruitful career.
