In the future, I would like to mentor again, preferably with a group. If given the opportunity, I would keep the journaling strategy. I had my mentee to journal her experiences and any key information during the mentorship, and it helped him significantly whenever it was time to “check in” with him. Journaling seemed to help him keep his thoughts organized, and it was a great tool to use so that my mentee could read her own journey as the IDP was in process happened (Ismail,2012).
I would like to be better about the timing in between “check-ins.” As the saying goes, “The thrill is gone!” At one point I waited too long to check in with my mentee and by then he had adopted this attitude of “if you don’t check, I won’t do.” Now, I know that this could have been because of his age. However, consistently checking in on mentees can help both the mentee and mentor be more accountable as the process goes on. The first and foremost thing would be being a good example to the mentee.Every workplace would have some problems, and so does my workplace too. We must face the challenges in the workplace, and we have offer ourselves problem solving techniques to get through the issue.
Encouraging a mentee is one of the best things as a mentor you could do. By encouraging them to put their all in everything they are doing in a profession and life.Sometimes you must confront any wrongs done by the mentee, because at times some people may present unacceptable behavior and you have to condemn such things. Try to explore new opportunities through your mentee. Even with a good support from the mentee we can push our limits and achieve things which we never dream of.
To conclude those are some important techniques and strategies to overcome all the difficulties faced by a mentor, at workplace also. I am using these techniques in my daily life and any techniques contrary to those techniques were not advisable to follow and I would immediately stop using such strategies or techniques which show a negative result (Ismail,2012).
