Our Family Is Crazy
Introduction to

DIG

How many of us can think back to a time in our career where we were grateful to have a mentor? Not only were we grateful, but we also valued input and direction from an experienced professional to become more knowledgeable, confident, and skilled in our work. 

I have been a practicing SLP for 15 years, and I still look to my mentor for advice. In my experience, my mentor has been a key driver of my success. I was encouraged to engage in open dialogue, ask questions, step outside of my comfort zone, accept constructive feedback, and extend my network.  These are just a few of the areas that have motivated me to expand my professional skills. 

There are so many benefits to mentorship, and mentoring programs are not just about the mentee. In fact, mentorship requires commitment from both the mentor and the mentee, as well as awareness to character traits and skills that will be effective, facilitate success, and provide a lasting value.

Mentoring relationships can enhance professional development and promote growth in several ways, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. This includes providing access to professional advice, promoting self-confidence, developing new skills, enhancing professional opportunities, and reducing job-related stress. An article by the American Occupational Therapy Association discusses a mentor-mentee relationship in which the mentor indicates “good mentorship leads to a better profession because it increases the fleet of strong, prepared professionals” (Waite, 2014). 

I’m excited to say Infinity Rehab recognizes the importance of offering mentorship. Not only does mentorship support skill development and competencies, but it also promotes self-awareness and value-based qualities. As part of Infinity Rehab’s pursuit in providing exceptional quality, value, and patient and customer experience, as well as creating a culture that inspires employees to grow as leaders, Infinity Rehab will offer a new program called DIG into Mentorship

Stay tuned – I can’t wait to dig deeper into Infinity Rehab’s mentorship program!
