Why mentoring - and why mentoring programs?

 

Conclusion

In this module, we've learned that the benefits of mentoring are extremely diverse, and so it's important to keep an open mind during the mentoring process about how you can benefit from being mentored or mentoring others.

Reflection task

Ask yourself: Which of these benefits resonate with me most right now, and why do I think that is?

In the next module, we will look at this concept of mentoring as a mutually beneficial experience in a little more detail, as well as hear some real life mentoring stories.
