Mentor vs Employer
In today's ever-changing business world, the traditional employer-employee relationship is transforming into something that benefits both parties. Companies are shifting their focus from simply being employers to becoming career supporting, and often life changing,
mentors. At Fulltec Consultants, we believe employers should be mentors to their employees, and our very own Anthony Fuller shares his thoughts about how he acts as a mentor, how this impacts Fulltec, and why he is passionate about maintaining these positive relationships.
Anthony believes the traditional role of an employer often revolves around exerting authority and delegating tasks without considering the well-being of employees, whereas a mentor should take on the responsibility of a teacher by providing guidance, support, and encouraging ongoing learning with their employers. A mentor actually values questions and builds a relationship based on trust, therefore creating a more welcoming and warm environment in the workplace. In Anthony’s experience, empowering employees through mentorship cultivates a sense of loyalty and fosters long-term commitment. When employees feel valued and supported, their job satisfaction increases, leading to higher productivity and a more positive work environment.
But the benefits of mentorship extend beyond individual companies. Although Anthony implements his idea of mentorship at Fulltec, he also believes other businesses need to embrace mentorship as a responsibility to shape their future success. Providing mentorship opportunities creates an environment where employees feel comfortable approaching their employers with questions and concerns. Anthony understands that a unified team that values mentorship principles becomes a productive and progressive entity within the entire community. Businesses serve as a reflection of their leaders' integrity and social responsibility. By bridging the gap between generations and fostering relational value, companies contribute to the overall betterment of their local community.
Anthony, the driving force behind Fulltec, is a passionate advocate for mentorship. Having experienced the challenges of the business world alone, he understands the transformative power of a mentor's guidance. Some individuals took chances on him, recognizing his potential, while others sought to exploit his ambition. Anthony's personal mission revolves around helping others succeed. He believes that by sharing information, providing training, and offering resources, he can uplift individuals and position them for success. His philosophy is centered on the belief that when we lift each other up, everyone wins. By embodying this ethos, Anthony hopes to create a culture of mentorship within Fulltec and beyond, enabling others to thrive in.
