Besides having multiple mentors, you can have mentoring conversations. That is have a conversation with someone about a specific issue.

"More than ever before, people see through the self-serving tactics and techniques that others use to persuade them."

 

"They don't like being pushed, played or nudged to comply, and they resist and resent agenda-driven influencers."

 

"The alternative is to use real influence to inspire buy-in and commitment."

 

"To invite genuine buy-in and engagement, we need to listen with a strong personal motive to learn and understand." by Mark Goulston and John Ullmen

It's the week of listening!


Here's the 3rd article in 2 days about ways to improve our listening skills. Well, all I can say is, it must be time to focus on listening :)


This is what I love about this article that fellow curator Ken Jondahl found: it talks about the 4 types of listening we typically do. And how to avoid those experiences. And how to engage in the kind of listening that does produce powerful insights and results. Yeah.


So go listen better and have fun practicing this weekend!

Karen Dietz's comment, April 11, 2013 2:18 PM
Great article Ken! Thanks for sharing.

No, I think the best mentoring relationships happen organically, where you click and connect with someone else, and as a result want to help them grow, personally and professionally.
