What Our Past CPM Participants said about the Program

Anita Kapoor
Host, facilitator, speaker

The course is an important and major step towards changing the current mentorship landscape by recognising that the role of a mentor isn't just about expertise in a field, a title or experience, or talking about your accomplishments, it is about being able to resonate authentic emotional intelligence and genuine interest in each relationship, to respect the relationship as equals, look at challenges with intelligent empathy, and, to know your limits. 

It also guides each mentor on how to recognise attributes that have not been a part of our offering and why it is needed, how to build and maintain. 

A highlight for me was the emotional/ mental/ spiritual hygiene module, which examines the mentor inside out. And how the field between coach, mentor and counsellor was levelled."

"I have thoroughly enjoyed all the 6 modules and breakout room discussions! Great teaching materials, extensive networking and interesting mental healthcare exposure to me who is new in this field. 

My top 3 key learnings were: 
1.  Setting my personal mission statement is pertinent
2. Learning the important listening skills to do my job better
3. Creating a community of love and support during this Covid hardship is key

Much appreciated and thank you all who have made this experience possible!”
