Unfortunately we had to say no to three applications because of few mentors. But we are starting today with mentee training, giving them some tools in personal development. And of course we need to take some time explaining how they can best «use» their mentor. All that we are doing […]
Today I sit and read all the applications to this years mentoring program at the university in Stavanger, and they all impress me for their motivation. Not only for joining this program, but overall both education and their work experience. A lot of them are raised in one country, education […]
I met my big, big inspiration: David Clutterbuck at the conference. I was not surprised since he was one of the founders, but I was nervous…

My next training, session 2, was called:
“Mystery of Mastery” What makes an excellent coach, excellent”?
What is the difference between a good coach and a excellent coach.
The trainer was Dr. Stephen Burt.
The topic was very interesting, but i felt it became very theoretical, and it become very “namedropping”…
Wow, what an opening… for me it was overwhelming just to be in the room of so many fellow mentoring and coaching colleagues. Our President Dr. Lise Lewis put the standard high and not to mention the fantastic Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson. She comes on stage in a wheelchair and told […]
My first ever seminar, session 1, is with Belinda Baillie. And she talked about energy – attitude and connection… powerful…
