What’s the Best Advice You Ever Received from a Mentor?
By Deb Schweikert (LDS P272)


“Best advice from a mentor” was a hot topic in my office recently, and it was a fascinating conversation. For me, the answer was easy: “You need to learn to work harder on yourself than on the job.” My mentor had heard this from someone else, and it had really stuck with him as something worthy of being passed on to others. It had a significant impact on me—and I, in turn, have said it to my mentees.

Leadership Thoughts:
Start with Compassion
In forestry, a leader is the vertical stem at the top of the tree trunk. When the tree’s leader is damaged due to weather, insects, or disease, it is removed to maintain the tree’s stability and geometry. Next, the arborist selects a healthy branch near the top of the tree to become the new leader.
