“Before you are a leader, success is about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is about growing others.” -Jack Welch, ex-CEO of General Electric.

Jack Welch shares how the success of a leader is shown through development of people. As the workforce grows, leaders need to consider how to onboard, engage, develop, and coach them to succeed in their careers. Companies must invest in future leaders through the process of mentorship.

In a 2018 study conducted by Olivet Nazarene University, 76% of 3,000 American employees believe mentors are important, but only 37% of them had one. We believe that everyone can be successful, and it starts with having a good mentor. However, as the statistic shows, not everyone is given that opportunity because they do not have access to a mentor.

In our second "Leadership Table Talk," our Founder, President & CEO, Andrew Sungsoo Kim, shares his own experience of being mentored and actively mentoring throughout his career, and explains how he focuses on mentorship as one of his core leadership philosophies.
