Usefulness of mentoring

Usefulness of Mentoring

Kenneth Wilson, Nobel-laureat physicist, Ohio State University:

“There is two ways to get on with successful training,

You could take a practice run with somebody who has lots of experience and the ability to shareit.

The other way is to be taken to the base of Everest, dropped off with all the required technical equipment, and told to get to the top or quit. If you don’t make it, your enthusiasm disappears, and you seek way to avoid similar challenges in the future.”

(Redesigning Education)

Concept of mentoring
Concept of Mentoring

Mentoring is a powerful and popular way to learn a variety of personal and professional skills.

The origin of the term is attributed to the Greek mythology.

“In Homer’s Odyssey, Mentor was the teacher of Telemachus, the son of Odysseus.

But Mentor was more than a teacher.

Mentor was half-God and half-man and half-female, believable and yet unreachable. Mentor was the union of both goal and path, wisdom personified.”

(Daloz, LA, Mentorship, Galbraith (Ed), Krieger, 1988)
