Who Are You Calling “Grasshopper” Anyway?, by Roberta Voulon

Talk level: beginner

“Patience, young grasshopper.” Mentoring young grasshoppers is a way of giving back and sharing the wisdom you’ve accumulated over the years. And mentoring with a peer can help you solidify what you have just learned, or to have a concept explained to you better than someone 15 years your senior might have. We feel validated by receiving and giving mentorship.

There are a few pitfalls though. How we think we learn isn’t necessarily what the learning brain has to say about it. As a mentee, we don’t always know how to ask the right questions, or as a mentor how to answer the questions right. We want to be helpful but maybe we also like to hear ourselves talk.

In this presentation we will go into the research that can help us understand how we learn, how we can help build self-confidence in others and ourselves, and how to determine an individual approach for all types of people we mentor, including those who think very differently than us. We’ll also go into our experience with mentorship at Les Pitonneux, with both receiving and giving mentorship.
