Meaningful Mentoring: 4 Tips on Taking Advice | Evaluating expertise | Scoop.it

“Don’t follow any advice, no matter how good, until you feel as deply in your mind that the counsel is wise." - Joan Rivers

 

Throughout our lives, during times of uncertainty we seek guidance and wisdom from those we are close to. How do we utilize their insights with our intuition?

There is an art to "taking" advice........

ratzelster's curator insight, June 1, 2013 8:29 AM

Finding a valued source of wisdom is critical because no one can go it alone.   And finding someone who matches with your style, understanding your circumstances and your organization is key.

Deborah Long's curator insight, June 2, 2013 12:54 AM

Seeking guidance from those you trust is what a mentoring relationship is all about. Taking the advice and reflecting on the decision to be made must be given sound consideration.

Katelyn Mitchell's curator insight, March 23, 8:11 AM

At the moment I am apart of a Mentor group with CQU. My mentor has helped me alot, with class choices and Moodle. In the years to come going through my course at CQU I hope to also become a mentor to help other new students with questions and confusions they may have.  

Mentoring it all about being equal, both parties learning from each other and also valuing differences.

Knowing What You Know: Expertise Discovery & Management

Former Hewlett-Packard CEO Lew Platt once famously quipped “If only HP knew what HP knows, we would be three times more efficient.” This is the perennial problem of the hidden expert. Most of the real “know-how” in an organization floats around in the form of tacit knowledge.

Mentoring in the Workplace: Empathy by the Back Door

While there are many private sector mentoring programmes in place, these are too often seen as 'nice-to-have', but not essential.

 

Successful mentoring relationships often transcend this as mentors gain an understanding of the world view of another generation and equally, mentees can help senior colleagues to see new perspectives and shifts in societal behaviour, for instance, the growing importance of social networks. These partnerships, inevitably, bring a new level of empathy into the workplace as greater understanding between groups of people develops. This empathy can increase mutual respect for co-workers and remind us of the nuances of an individual's needs, as opposed to just focusing on generic rules and regulations.
