3 Skills to Master the gift of Mutual Mentorship

12.075 visualizaciones

Publicado el

Mentorship is a seemingly simple concept. Get some help from someone more experienced than you. So why do we bother teaching a class on it? Because like anything else it's a skill to mentor and be mentored. And if we can learn that skill it can be a real gift, both to give and receive.

But first of all you've got to know what you're looking for in mentorship. Is it a handout or real help? Do you want answers or are you really looking to learn? For those looking to learn and build not just knowledge but skills for self sufficiency, mentoring can be a mutually rewarding gift.

Think of the process of being mentored as a game of chess. You can easily ask for the next move, but wouldn't you rather learn to master the game?

See the presentation to learn 3 skills to get you going on that path:-
