Your Mentoring Experience: Do you have a mentor? If not why? How important have they been? Any tips?

    Hi all

    I've just been reading one of the newest series of resources for UK Coaching Subscribers on mentoring produced from Sarah Kelleher and John Fletcher's 2019 UK Coaching Conference keynote.

    In the talk (amongst other things) they emphasised the positive contribution that mentoring can make to coaching practice with Sarah sharing how important a mentor was for her, in particular when she became head coach of England girls’ U18 hockey team.

    In ConnectedCoaches we've also previously explored the relationship between mentor and coach with members Matthew Wood &  Matte Hart (there have also been a couple of super conversation threads: See  Wendy Russell : How to mentor different coaching personalities?! And  Dusty Miller  Mentoring...)

    ...but I was curious about what everyone in the community's experience has been of mentoring?

    Do you have a regular mentor?

    What do you value most about your relationship?

    What makes them good (or bad) at what they do?

    How important have they been to your development?

    If you don't have a mentor what is it that is preventing you from working with one? (there are lots of community members I'm sure that would be happy to connect and support you smile)

    If anyone is or has been a mentor what would your top tips be for being a good mentor or even mentee?!

    As always look forward to reading about your experiences smile

    So I am currently on the exciting journey of doing my Advanced Coaches Program for England Hockey. As part of this I have been given a mentor, and he has created a group with everyone he his mentoring on this program. 

    It has been great sharing ideas and issues, plus he checks in and can't wait to see where this goes. Whilst I have been a mentor for other coaches and teachers, I have never had an official mentor. So looking forward to this new side of the mentoring journey!!
