Bill Dogterom shares about mentoring and the shared journey on episode #129 of Teaching in Higher Ed.
Quotes from the episode
If they know that you really do have their best interests at heart, they’ll teach you how to teach them.
What I like to do most is to walk with people and to learn from them as much as they learn from me.
For me, it’s more of a shared journey than a pure mentor relationship.
If they know that you’re actually listening to them, they will let you into their story.
