"It is important that your mentors recognize your potential, but they also need to be willing to acknowledge and share insights about behaviors or blind spots that could be creating roadblocks for you. You need realistic cheerleaders who will tell the truth, even if it’s unpleasant (as long as it is constructive). And believe me, if there aren’t some unpleasant insights -- they probably aren’t telling you the truth."
