Module 1 - Introductions to the life of...

I'm not sure if this is the right place to be posting this but here goes anyhow...

The three benefits that stand out to me are:

Regular agreed times- with times prearranged time is set aside and prioritised for the sessions well in advance

Responsive and flexible to needs- the mentee drives the sessions "what's on top for you?"

Self tailored by Mentee- Mentee goals are self directed and there is no right or wrong goals to have.

A limitation may be that as a mentor the boundaries need to be maintained in terms of time and the temptation to always be responsive outside of "session" times.

  • Kia ora Sally. Thanks for sharing your thoughts here (as an aside, I have added you to the DVM group, which is one place DVMs share (link here). It's a closed group so that you can express yourself in a way that you might not in an open group :D)

    Really enjoyed reading your thoughts, especially around the routine and structure, which, in and of itself, is still flexible enough to be self-tailored and fluid enough for heaps of choice. A wondering here, what, if anything. do you feel was the benefit(s) of having a routine and structure? What are your thoughts about how this might support your own mentees going forward?
