My former manager left our company a year ago to pursue another opportunity. He was an excellent manager and a great mentor.
I feel like my personal growth is slowing down without his mentorship. I'd really like to reach out and ask if he would continue being a mentor to me.
- Is this an appropriate thing to do?
- What should I offer in return? I can offer to pay him an hourly rate etc but I don't want to offend him by offering him money. I'm sure he doesn't need any more money, it would just be a token gesture so he's not giving me his time for free.
