MENTORING

Accelerating your growth on your Dawson Program journey...

Have you attended the Dawson Program training and wish you had more support to help you implement the knowledge and skills you've gained into your daily life, or perhaps even guide you along the journey to become a practitioner? To assist graduates of the Dawson Program training, a formal mentoring program has been established. You may be interested to become a mentor or you may like to find a mentor. There is a pathway for growth for all levels.

WHAT IS A MENTOR/MENTEE RELATIONSHIP IN THE DAWSON PROGRAM?

An effective mentor/mentee relationship is mutually beneficial and respectful. Being a mentor assists your own journey as well as the journey of the student you will be mentoring (the mentee). It involves the acquisition and sharing of knowledge in alignment with the needs of the mentee. In sharing this knowledge, the awareness of both the mentor and the mentee will grow. The Dawson Program model of continuous learning provides an opportunity for mentor/mentee relationships of this nature to be undertaken.

WOULD YOU LIKE TO FIND A MENTOR? (BECOME A MENTEE)

Effectively fulfilling a mentee role requires:

  • Feeling comfortable to sharing your challenges and interests with your mentor

  • Being open to accepting and applying suggestions/new ideas that may assist with those challenges and interests

  • Providing feedback to the mentor during the process to allow the mentor to meet your needs

 

At different times, this may include:

  • Listening carefully to suggestions/advice being offered

  • Discussing subjects confidentially that may help to advance your personal awareness/skills

ARE YOU INTERESTED TO BECOME A MENTOR?

Effectively fulfilling a mentor role requires:

  • Being able to allow each trainee to grow at their own rate without judgement, or self-serving motives

  • Allowing the process to be fluid and unrestrictive

  • Being supportive, humble and encouraging

 

At different times, this may include:

  • Giving advice to less experienced people to help them advance their knowledge and/or workplace

  • Assist to build confidence by walking with them and allowing the energy to become more free flowing

  • Be a listening ear or sounding board for ideas and queries that arise in their personal lives through their exposure and practice of the Dawson Program; and in their professional activities as a Dawson Practitioner
