#108: Transformative Power of Mentoring (w/ David Riffel)

In this episode we will dive into the profound impact of mentoring. Special guest David Riffel, executive director of Mentoring Warriors, joins me to share his inspiring story from facing a life-threatening health scare to founding a non-profit focused on mentoring young men. David unfolds the significance of 'father wounds', the necessity of being a safe and trustworthy mentor, and the mutual growth both mentor and mentee undergo. Together, we explore the challenges of fatherhood, the lack of mentors in today's society, especially for men, and how Mentoring Warriors is addressing this gap. We wrap up by discussing the role of gratitude and joy in our lives, professional mentoring practices, and the interpersonal skills young men are often missing. Our conversation leaves listeners with practical advice on becoming a mentor and the encouragement to take small steps towards big impacts in both personal and professional spheres.
