These handsome student leaders are managing the Gustavus Alumni Mentor Program that’s growing wild today! Left to right: Ben Reynolds, Sarah Barthell, Andrew Oakes – all Class of 2014.
Last week Monday, we kicked off the 2013/14 Gustavus Alumni Mentoring Program in Minneapolis. What began as an idea we shared many years ago, took shape in 2009 when 12 alumni donated their time to mentor Gustavus students seeking careers in Economics, Management and Business. Their generosity blossomed into more than 130 Gustavus alumni mentoring matches this year. And the best part: the program is growing with student-leadership, under the careful attention of the Gustavus Center for Servant Leadership. Growing is good!
What does all this growth have in common? When good leaders work together with good intentions, great things (growth) are possible!
Good leaders make a habit of mentoring and being mentored because it’s good for our growth. And we nurture the seeds of goodness with the people we meet along the way.
Please share with me: who’s growing around you today?
