Best Mentors: Danielle Garno Gives Mentees Space to 'Breathe, Grow and Make Mistakes'
Partner Danielle Garno was interviewed by the Daily Business Review as a part of its "Best Mentors" series. In this Q&A interview, Ms. Garno discussed her secrets for effective mentoring, which she attributed mostly to personal understanding and relationships with mentees. She also stressed the importance of being able to slow down even when working in a fast-paced environment. Slowing down can improve the quality of work a mentee produces and also enables the mentor to connect with the team. Finally, Ms. Garno suggested utilizing social media and local outings as a way to stay connected to key mentors.
"Understanding people where they are and on a personal level, not just career-wise. This develops trust, which is essential to effective mentoring," Ms. Garno said.
