I have always enjoyed mentoring, especially new youngsters that are desperate to learn, but are daunted by the learning process. I don't remember too many mentors, and had a habit of doing it 'my way', but it's never too late to learn, even from your kids, so I thank them.

Wow - powerful article about all the mentor-ship opportunities out there they are not all formal realtionships but what you can gain from them. Amazing. Made me really think about who I mentor and how and who I should look for more guidance.

interesting article about the influences on the authors life, both working life and in a more general sense. Not a huge amount of detail or hard data herein but still a worthwhile read to point out the impotance, often unseen, of the mentor/mentee relationship

A great article to help you realise how important good mentors are to have and to be to others.


They come in all shapes and sizes and all comments (positive and negative) will help form you as a person.
