Title: Mentoring


1
Mentoring
  • Growing Coworkers through Relationship and
    Modeling

2
Mentoring is a relational teaching method which
relies heavily on modeling. It provides a safe
and supportive environment for risk taking. It
utilizes challenges to provide appropriate risks.
The mentor models vision, in terms of patterns
of thinking, to guide the mentoree into
appropriate problem-solving and relational
paradigms. Mentoring is dynamic in that it
results in a gradual increase in self-teaching
and therefore a changing relationship with the
mentor.
3
Leaders as Mentors
  • Be a facilitator and coach, not an order-giver.
  • Motivate through involvement.
  • Maintain a sense of partnership.
  • Look for challenges in work as teaching
    opportunities.

4
Role of a Mentor
Treating people as partners leads to the
development of independent coworkers treating
them as observers leads to the formation of
dependent followers who continue asking for
guidance.
5
Growth Necessitates Movement
  • Support provides safety for movement.
  • Challenge provides motivation for movement.
  • Vision provides guidance for movement.

6
Supporting
  • Listening
  • Providing structure
  • Safe environment
  • Providing continuity (through presence and
    experience)
  • Encouraging
  • Advocating
  • Offering mental maps
  • Positive expectations

7
Challenging
  • Setting tasks
  • Questioning assumptions or approaches
  • Setting standards
  • Encouraging hypothetical thinking
  • Providing feedback
  • Constructing hypotheses

8
Purpose of Challenge
When a mentor challenges, it creates cognitive
dissonance which the mentoree wants to eliminate.
This is intended to lead to growth.
9
Visioning
  • Modeling
  • Providing cognitive maps
  • New language
  • Metaphors
  • Analyzing ones own position from different
    vantage points

10
Centrality of Vision
  • Vision is the ability to see the world in new
    ways.
  • One purpose of mentoring is to unveil new
    perspectives, new ways of thinking and acting.
  • Mentoring should assist people in becoming
    critical thinkers.

11
Mentors Comprehensive Approach to Topics
  • Broad overview
  • Context
  • Relationship to other topics
  • Assumptions and their alternatives
  • Discussion and debate
  • Applications, past and possible
  • History
  • Experts
  • Cultural Variances
  • Other points of view
  • Controversial positions and perspectives
  • Analysis
  • Reflection
  • Polarities vs. either/or

12
The Growth Dialectic
  • Support confirms, identifies, and establishes the
    thesis.
  • Challenge identifies and proposes the antithesis.
  • Vision enables synthesis.

Thesis (Support) Antithesis (Challenge) gt
Synthesis (Vision)
13
Vision as the Basis for Change
Visionis the field on which the dialectical
game between the old self and the new can be
played it is the context that hosts both support
and challenge in the service of transformation.

Laurent Daloz
Synthesis is not compromise, but a way of
thinking in which the only solution is through an
understanding of the opposing position.
14
Final Thoughts
We learn as much from how we are taught as from
what we are taught.
Spend more time with fewer people to create a
lasting impact.
