Think of someone in your life who listened to your story, understood you as a whole person and helped you find your path. That person was a mentor to you and your relationship with them may have been one of the richest ever.
Mentoring is something that can happen organically, but are there ways of making it happen more intentionally? Can you help someone flourish as a whole person? Can you be a mentor? Or would you like to find a mentor for yourself?
Rick Woolworth will lead a two-hour workshop on mentoring (and being mentored) which will explore what mentoring is, why it’s a powerful way to enrich lives and how to do it. He’ll show why mentoring used to be common in society (think apprentices and families working together on farms), and why we hunger for those lost connections today. And he’ll challenge you to think about how you might offer yourself as a listener, a guide and someone who lifts up others across generations. He’ll also discuss where you might find a mentor.
