Exploring possibility in relationship
The Workplace Mix
Today’s workplace is a mix of cultures, generations and perspectives. Mentoring is a powerful professional development and empowerment process that bridges these gaps and creates meaningful engagement and momentum at work.
Mentoring is a developmental partnership. It’s a mutual commitment to bring out the best in the other person. It calls forth new possibilities through the flow of meaning in relationship based on mutual respect and trust.
A Possible Future
Both the mentor and the mentee lean towards a possible instead of a predictable future – the mentor shares knowledge, skills and perspective to foster the personal and professional growth of the mentee, and the mentee takes full ownership of the opportunity and drives the process to a successful outcome.
Mentoring in the workplace is a process that is low on bureaucracy and high on experiential learning.
It’s the art of cultivating self-sufficiency, confidence and expertise that aligns with the vision and mission of the organization.

I just wanted to add my personal thanks for an insightful talk yesterday. We’ve had some epic speakers, but it’s not often you see folk engaging as they did with you and your message. I particularly appreciated that you were speaking from the heart. It was a ‘real’ encounter – an authentic dialogue with the things we carry in our heart.
An authentic dialogue about being a whole person that opens my awareness and appreciation of who I am and what I can be.
Awesome talk. The topic of ownership rang bells for me.
