Abandoning Mentorship for Something Better
Mentoring relationships have a heartwarming a well-meaning tradition in which learning and growth can take place in individuals. Maybe you've had a mentor before? Maybe you've even felt guilty for not having one? As someone who has spent 20 years working with people with a strong desire to learn, I've abandoned the language of mentorship for something else. In this session we'll discuss other forms of generative relationships that empower and cultivate learning as individuals and groups. These new forms cultivate stronger cultures and engender personal responsibility in ways traditional mentorship falls short. If you're a learner, or a manager creating a culture of learning come and discuss a more fruitful way.
