“No one ever goes at it alone,” Hoey explains. “Our careers and ambitions move forward with the help of other people.” Having mentors and serving as a good mentor to others will help you do a job well, master a new skill, or navigate the dynamics of a workplace. “My first career was as an attorney in Canada, where all law students must do an ‘articling year’ before being admitted to the practice of law,” Hoey tells us. “This early experience instilled in me an ethos of extending a hand to help others on their path to success — as a practical matter, being known as a great mentor can make it easier to recruit people to your project teams or to take on an assignment for you.”
