I have always welcomed the opportunity to help people with their development and sometimes would like people to ask for more help. The question is what should I do? Should I reach out to people I want to help or do I wait for them to reach out to me?
My general conclusion is if people want help they will ask. If they do not ask, I am not being helpful reaching out. I wonder what other people who are mentors think?
One thing I find really satisfying is writing this blog. I find I can reach out and help people with my ideas without getting in their face. I do not get the immediate feedback from a face to face meeting but I am believe I am being helpful to some people.
However I think mentors need to take care they are not dependent on the people they are helping. We need to be sensitive to the readiness or the people we help not our agenda.
