1.the value of mentoring circles for lifelong learning in organizations and communities
2. the difference between traditional mentoring programs in organizations and this model of developing mentoring circles
3. developing a culture of emergent leadership through mentoring circles
4. developing community engagement through mentoring circles
5. a mentoring circle design
6. design of a mentoring circle program
The mentoring circles that are one of the eleven key components of the Genuine Contact program exist because we believe in the power of peer-to-peer exchanges as an important venue for lifelong learning. Mentoring circles do not have the same risk of people giving up their power to a mentor. Rather, people participating actively in mentoring circles discover their self-empowerment strengthening. People who attend the workshops want to develop high levels of confidence and mastery with the tools, techniques, and concepts that they have learned. For us, the answer to this desire was these peer-to-peer mentoring circles. Mentoring in this instance is a verb, not a noun. The verb denotes action between the persons involved, assisting each other with knowledge, support, confidence boosting, great questions, challenges, and opportunities. We avoid any tendency to dogma in such mentoring circles, rather the freedom to examine the tools, techniques and concepts, and have experiences and learn…lifelong learning. In mentoring circles, people have the opportunity to grow in their personal power, knowledge, wisdom, and skills…if they so choose. Ah yes, the choice is up to the individual as to what he or she wishes to experience and obtain in the learning journey.
For lifelong learning, at Dalar, we are strong advocates of peer-to-peer mentoring circles, trusting that the wisdom to do what is needed is in the circle of people gathered. This is different from the concept of developing a traditional mentorship program in an organization, easier to organize and sustain, and in my experience, more effective over the long term for boosting both skills and confidence. Our company, Dalar International Consultancy, Inc. sponsors one annual international mentoring circle. Throughout the year when we are doing in house corporate workshops, we work to assist people in the corporation to develop an in-house peer-to-peer mentoring circle for continued learning.
