給自己的职业生涯找个”Mentor”

最近在《华尔街日报》(欧洲版)看到一篇“growing with a menter”的文章很有意思,这里大概介绍一下。
“mentor”用我们中国人通俗的说法就是“师傅带徒弟的关系”,想想武侠书里师傅训练徒弟的情节:有时师傅会一招一试地教徒弟,有时则让徒弟自己悟,有时候会对谈;师傅的功力远在徒弟之上,对徒弟的水平了如指掌,而徒弟也绝对信任师傅。这篇文章则是在执行层面上对成功的“mentor”和“mentee”关系做了一个表述。
大意如下(当然你要先給自己找个”mentor”):
1)在两人开始讨论任何话题之前,花足够的时间去了解对方的个人背景和职业生涯。比如对方的个性、兴趣、成长经历、教育背景、成长环境、职业发展道路等一些比较隐私的东西, 以建立信任。
---这个过程要一直贯穿于整个“mentoring”的过程,这种因为信任和了解而给双方带来的利处将会在未来显现它的力量。
2)“mentee”尤其需要弄清楚自己在被“mentoring”之后要达成的目标是什么,最适合自己的学习方式是什么。
---事实就是如此,你可以向任何人索要解决问题的处方,但只有你真正了解自己的内疾,才能对症下药。
3)“mentor”和“mentee”在第一次正式会面时应该设定基调:每次见面的具体时间、频率,以及怎样在见面之外的时间保持沟通,否则,“mentoring”就很容易就会因为种种推迟最后不了了之了。
---提前确定见面议程,并且雷打不动地执行下去,是确保“mentoring”不提前流产的非常强有力的工具。
可以看一下The Value of a Mentor这篇文章,开始給自己找个”mentor”吧:-)
