Recognise your own name or someone else’s on this list?
Dear 2017 Group Minties aka Mentees. I have always struggled with the term, ‘mentees’…seems too American or something and this morning when I was out walking, I had a light-bulb moment – I am proposing a re-branding to something much closer to home (!)… I propose we rename you Minties!! Because you are always fresh and you give me & your fellow Minties always something; cases, questions, clinical conundrums, ethical dilemmas, every month to seriously get our teeth stuck into! Cheesy but true 😉
Congratulations on completing your full year of group mentoring – and if this is your 2nd, your 3rd even your 4th year then I bow to you even more deeply.
Thank you for including me on your support team and entrusting me with helping you grow & develop as exceptional practitioners.
You should be celebrated for your commitment to your own learning & your endeavour to always improve your knowledge and skills.
So if your name is not on this year’s Honour Roll – (apologies to all those practitioners who do private individual mentoring with me on a regular basis…the list just got too long but this applies to you as well!) – take a good look at whose is – I am sure you know someone here and perhaps now knowing about their commitment to their own development might help you to understand why they stand out not just for how good they are but how they continue to challenge themselves and strive to be better.
And to finish with the words of one truly lovely 2017 Group Minty:
“To Rachel and everyone, thanks so much for a great year, I’ve learnt a lot, become inspired (become overwhelmed at times too!), but certainly grown as a practitioner thanks to you all and especially Rachel!” Tess x
Oh and psssst…..we have just 5 spots left across all of our groups for next year…if you want to grab one email us quick at firstname.lastname@example.org
