Learning Circle - It Takes a Village A

“It takes a village to raise a child” is an African proverb that is very applicable to mentoring. Our “village” has never been more necessary than it is today. We live in a fast-paced, instant information, and pressure-packed world. Mentees also go through different stages in life, play multiple roles, that require different types of mentors, and at times more than one mentor for different parts of their life. Different mentors, with their own unique set of skills and mentoring expertise, can work with mentees to give them a well-rounded and multi-faceted mentoring environment. This discussion is about collaboration and partnerships you need to build as a mentor with your peers to support your mentee in the best way possible.
