Expanding Mentoring Help from SueMentors: A New Webinar




I enjoy the individual mentoring that I do for organizations and for personal clients. For several years, I’ve wanted to make mentoring help more widely available. Writing my blog was a start at that.

But my mentor-mentee interactions have reinforced that mentees want – and need – real-time examples of advice that addresses their issues.

So I am pleased to be partnering with my graduate alma mater, the Tulane University Office of Alumni Relations, to initiate a monthly Mentoring Help webinar, with the first webinar in May 2018. The 30-minute format will include 3 sections:
  •         A brief review of the mentoring topic for the month
  •         A case example of the mentoring topic with a mentee and mentor working through the mentee's issue in real time
  •         SueMentor’s Question Time (aka answering questions submitted in advance of the webinar).



This form solicits information from you about your interest in attending the webinars, identification of the issue(s) that you'd like the mentor to address, and designation of whether you'd be interested in serving as the real-time case example, if your topic/question is selected. (You do not need to be a Tulane University alum or student to participate.)

We’ve categorized topics as shown but welcome additional categories you may want addressed.



Please contact me at SueMentors AT gmail.com if you have problems with the form or specific questions.

After you submit the Interest form, please email your latest CV or resume to: Sue_Men.cdiif7k3cxm6ksm0@u.box.com


Thank you for your interest.

2017 – Sue’s Year in Review

The last time I did a Year in Review was at the end of 2014. (See Sue's Year in Review, http://www.suementors.com/2014/12/sues-year-in-review.html.)
It was one of my first real forays into better communications and dataviz – and I have learned more since then. It’s been helpful that so many evaluators and others are blogging about improvements in communicating our work and even offering free courses and YouTube videos.

The infographic shows what I’ve done and I’m so really happy that my blogging is back – and on the upswing! It’s been wonderful to be able to use my mentoring skills in so many different ways this year - and even to start working on a second journal article.
But doing the review also made me realize what it doesn’t show from 2017: -14 weeks of hospital and acute rehab weeks and 6 of rehab-on-the-mend weeks (including 1 missed-vacation-in-Florida week because I couldn’t fly) for hip-related care -30 days of vacation trips in Wisconsin, St. Thomas (during Hurricane Irma …

Guidance on Mentoring: What is Mentoring?

This brief guide focuses on defining different aspects of mentoring, whether for an individual or for a team, and includes selected reference resources. It is critical that the mentee and mentor both approach their interaction with the same understanding of the nature and scope of the advising that will be offered. This brief guide can serve as a reference for both parties in arriving at that mutual understanding.
Before delving into mentoring, it’s important to be aware that sometimes the terms “mentoring” and “coaching” are used interchangeably despite important differences between them. There are many resources on mentoring and coaching – and almost as many different definitions for each as well as the similarities and overlap between the two (such as shown in the articles on coaching in the resource list below).Also, most people agree that mentoring is NOT training although a mentor or coach may recommend that a mentee obtain additional training.
What is the nature of the mentoring…
