Investigate together what each person seeks to learn - because of the mentoring arrangement - starting with the mentee 

Investigate means carry out research - to study - to inquire (formally) - to enquire (informally) about -> the facts of something or the characteristics of someone

Together refers to working with one another, with possible external support when requested - about collaborating, about collaborative conversations for the investigation

By working together you then move to working beyond - that is you expand, extend, and enliven your shared action_outcomes as a mentee, mentor, and for the mentoring arrangement

Person seeks to Learn ... while a person (mentee and mentor) may not like education (that is, how the person experiences educating) most would say they enjoy learning 

The question becomes, "What topics does a person want to learn for what purpose/reason?" (linking with #1, reread the post)

From a workplace perspective - for a mentoring arrangement there is:

  • formal learning = you are required to learn the topic - as in you must learn it because of your accountabilities or to remain safe/do no harm
  • informal learning = about the topics you determine are important to learn for knowing and doing, and they directly or indirectly influence your accountabilities in the near future including remaining safe/doing no harm
  • situational learning = what topic "in the moment" is apparenty worth investigating as it unfolds now or immediately afterwards because of your reflective action that would edit (add, alter, delete, leave) your formal and informal learning 

starting with the Mentee ... for the mentoring arrangement - it's important the mentor explore and discover the topics the mentee wants and needs to learn.

In this way, mentors are guiding the mentees to their investigation requirements (formal learning) and requests (informal learning) from situations the mentees ask to experience and/or lead them to experience through and because of the collaborative conversations  

Based on your collaborative conversation, as a mentor supporting your mentee:

  1. create a shared pathway forward for the mentee (and you)
  2. to learn formally and informally (and situationally)
  3. using a mentoring (more so, a facilitative mentoring) approach
  4. and other educating approaches aligned with the scope/concerns/influence of the learning 
  5. within the mentoring arrangement
  6. for use and evaluation now and in the near future 
  7. using safer practices to ensure no harm to self and others
