Stepping Stones for Mentoring Approach Pathway

Connect - bring together - into contact - for an actual link

Consider - think about with caring - before making a decision 

Converse - engage in conversation - with openness, sometimes exploring the reverse perspective

Conclude - bring to an end - arrive at reasoned decision

Complete - doing until finishing


Curate - select – organize – look after 

Correspond - match or agree - exchange [[Add: weaving - webwork - network…

35:36 As mentor, could you:

1]] Discern the decision - activity - outcomes filters of the mentee (and for yourself)

2]] Lean into empathy through your felt expression of EQ - add to your reasoned determinations

3]] Acknowledge “I maybe incorrect about Here and There” - collaborative conversations are fabulicious

4]] Remember beliefs are based on limited experiences to date (thought activity: write I believe statements, then rewrite as I suppose statements)

5]] Recognize your reality influences communication - are open to dance with mystery with humor as companion
