While many people believe that being mentored to improve their skills in their job or career, is of benefit, many of us aren't aware of the power of mentorship to make a difference beyond just improving our skills. Hence the decision by top tennis player Andy Murray to mentor two young British sprinters may come as a surprise.
Yet as this video of Mr Murray and his mentees, Shannon and Cheriece Hylton shows, they all benefit greatly from the relationship. Mr Murray is able to bring his experience and wisdom as a professional sportsman to the table, particularly in the areas beyond their individual sports, such as what do to when they retire and what he would have done better when he was a young tennis player.
Ultimately mentoring is much more than simply helping people get better at what they do day-to-day in one area of their life. It is an all-encompassing role that brings wisdom and awareness to areas of people's lives that they have little experience of. As a result, the mentee benefits and makes fewer mistakes in their lives meaning they achieve more with less effort!
