I’m feeling rather sad and at a loose end! Mentoring provides you with a purpose, something different from your everyday routine and gives you an enormous boost of enthusiasm, self worth and happiness. The happiness comes from knowing that you are passing along helpful tips and advice, which will hopefully be of use to the mentees in the present and future.
The penultimate mentoring session! Today would be sort of a test for the mentees (and mentors) to see whether they had developed and retained any of the skills we had hoped they would learn over the course of the 6 weeks!
