|I just finished listening to a phenomenal podcast by Michael Hyatt, a prolific blogger, author, speaker and former CEO of Thomas Nelson Publishing. He blogs at www.MichaelHyatt.com and my first piece of advice to you is to subscribe to his blog right away.His podcast is called “This Is Your Life.”
In this special podcast Michael addresses one of the frequent questions he hears and frankly, I do as well. “How do I find a mentor” is the question asked by pastors and church leaders across the country.
Listen to the podcast here (17 minutes on “Mentoring”, 8 minutes for Q&A and a 5-minute tip of the week).Michael suggests there are four levels of mentoring. He encourages starting at the first and easiest level and working your way through the levels. Here’s a synopsis of the levels.
If you’ll expand your horizons as to what a mentor is and how they could be of benefit, you may find your ministry going to levels you never imagined possible. Listen to the podcast and start working through the levels above. You’ll be glad you did!
Question: What method of mentoring have you seen most beneficial in your life? Click here to comment.
