One of my early mentors taught me that you cannot see the picture when you are in the frame. We are not programmed to see our potential, we can see potential in other people, but we cannot see our own potential. We also cannot see our own invisible boundaries or blind spots. What’s really important is not having our blind spot exposed but having someone with trained eyes and trained ears who has a vested interest in you. Entering into a Mentoring Relationship with a senior HR professional provides invaluable insight beyond your own education and experience.
