Last evening with the mentoring program in Stavanger University

This is always a fantastic evening, with all the mentee and mentors. First I meet the mentee for some Feedback and one of the fun question to Ask is  «What do you think your mentor have learned from you»?At first they dont know But after some time they say that maybe Young spirit, new perspective on things  and own reflection is some of the things. And asking the mentor the same question they say Exactly the same. 

It was a really good time with some wine and three course dinner. We give out diploma to the mentees and crystal to the mentors. And the mentees bring flowers to their mentor and to is coordinaters. 

Starting a new program

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 while the university arrange their career day, this is my first time at the career day so it’s exciting.

We will also have some training of the mentors, but they all have been mentors earlier, so its not that much needed. They had their training last year.

And so in the evening the mentee and mentors will meet for the first time, always fun to look at them sitting in the same room. And especially before i tell who is together, they are looking at each other and thinking who they will have.

Ok this is going to be a long day, now waiting for the plane,
