LOS ANGELES AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- CMSgt. Willie H. Frazier II, Space Systems Command, Senior Enlisted Leader, discusses his thoughts on shaping your career to a mentee. More than 120 people virtually participated in the Los Angeles Air Force Base speed mentoring event held earlier this month. 

The Chief of Space Operations, General Jay Raymond, provided opening remarks.  He emphasized the benefits of mentorship and that it needs to be repeatable and not a one-time thing.  Participants learned cultivating trust is important as well as not having just one mentor.  Mentoring is not some big, formal process; it is nothing more than routine conversation about your path forward.  Obtain many points of view as you shape your career and as you grow in your skillset, provide mentorship to others.  

The event was a success due to the planning of the Company Grade Officers Council, Civilian Leadership Development Council and the Commander’s Action Group.
