Seeking solutions for problems is impossible if you don’t know what the problem is.
Seeking answers is impossible if you don’t have a question.
In order to generate a question you need to have a foundation in the topic area and then identify a gap. A foundation will be within your own knowledge and experience. A gap is based on where you want to go, where you have a choice, where you have failed, or when change is needed.
Professional development may be ‘where you want to go’ or ‘where change is needed’ but you may lack the ability to formulate the right questions to go after the answers.
A mentor provides another source of knowledge and experience to add to a foundation of understanding, guidance to identify gaps, and an avenue to formulate questions. Answers and solutions can then be pursued to create a professional trajectory.
