Introduction

In this module we're going to challenge traditional mentoring stereotypes that imagine a wise, extremely experienced mentor who has all the answers with a mentee who simply listens and and reaps all the benefits.

By the end of this module, you'll learn:

1. Great mentoring comes in all shapes and sizes

2. Why you should embrace the unlikely connections

3. The beauty of a two way exchange of learning 

There's no such thing as the perfect match

 

Conclusion

There's no one-size-fits-all approach to mentoring. By embracing the unexpected, fostering two-way exchanges, and letting go of the quest for perfection, we can truly unlock the power of mentoring to drive personal and professional growth.

Reflection task

Ask yourself: What are my preconceived ideas of how a good mentor or mentee should be, and are they accurate?

In the next module, you'll learn what it means to be an effective mentor.
