The Mentors Project: Larry Stock

Posted online
Michael Katrosh, general manager and executive vice president at Queen City Roofing & Sheet Metal

Business and company succession. Also to assist Michael in personal and professional development and to help him develop leaders.

While we see each other daily, we take a one-hour session, once a week, for specific one-on-one mentoring and accountability discussion and checks.

The primary initial challenge actually was agreeing it was a priority and taking time out of the daily “fires” of normal operations, to plan, project and review, and to work on learning to lead others to become leaders.

Michael and I have had a strong relationship for many years. The breakthrough moment actually came when Michael realized the benefit of looking ahead into the future, and the long-term benefit of training and developing future leaders within our company

I did not have one. Perhaps that is one of the things that made me realize the true benefits of a mentor/mentee relationship.
