The maths of mentoring: Holly Ransom on the equation of getting help by giving it

Do your knees shake at the thought of public speaking? Are you intimidated before a big interview? Do you worry about finding the right mentor?

Holly Ransom, Fulbright Scholar and author of The Leading Edge, says it’s because you’re thinking about yourself. All those nerves will fall away if you re-frame and focus instead on the value you can bring to others. And if you’re hoping to find a great mentor, you have to be willing to pay it forward.

Holly also shares how you can better manage your days by doing an energy audit, taking micro-breaks, and setting the right number of goals.
