We are preparing the fourth cycle of the program “Creative Mentorship” which gathers 25 mentoring couples and enables the personal and professional development of future leaders in the field of culture from all over Serbia.
A competition for the IV generation of participants has just ended, and a mentor call is constantly open. The program lasts for a year and the new cycle starts in February 2018.
Here is a short mentoring guide, which aims to answer some of the practical questions for all those who for the first time formally engage in a mentoring relationship and provides guidance for the improvement and development for those already mentoring.
Our base of knowledge will inspire and support your personal development by providing insight into mentoring as a way to deal with everyday life, change and challenges.
Our mission is to spread mentoring as a tool for personal and professional development of individuals, but also to strengthen the capacities of organizations, institutions and companies and weider social development.
Over the years, we have gained relevant experience and knowledge, feel free to contact us if you are developing an internal mentoring scheme or you are looking for the right way to support and encourage your associates.
“Creative Mentorship” association affirms mentoring, empowers the culture sector and provides support to prospective professionals interested in developing, networking and sharing knowledge and experience.
We want to build, gather and support a community of motivated and socially responsible individuals that will contribute to the development of a society based on creativity, culture, knowledge and mutual cooperation.
I am very satisfied with my mentor. If I was thinking for months about the choice of my mentor, he would never come up with his name... however, choosing him seems such a logical move that I wonder whether it is really possible that it has never crossed my mind! Even on our first meeting I noticed that he has so much experience that he could tell only three sentences, and I would keep thinking on them all the time, for a month. I am not used to such outcomes: my big dilemmas might not be solved, but I got huge input in just one sentence.
I think that the match is great and the feeling I have with my mentor is fantastic. Now I am trying to motivate my colleagues to find mentors for themselves!
Awesome! Inspiring! Beneficial on so many levels. Creative Mentorship is a great opportunity to connect and create a network with people who share your interests and values, as well as benchmark with them while having insights into their experience. Opportunity to learn and teach in both formal and informal environments.
The group of mentors I belong is made of many people for whom I myself wanted to be mine mentors ... A team that could change not Serbia, but the world.
It is a great reward when I see that my questions and thoughts are moving mentee who takes chalenges seriously, reacts really personally and then makes significant changes. Such discussions also helped me to look back at many aspects of my own life and work. In addition, in a project like this, I meet some fascinating people!
"Creative Mentorship” is an example of how the cultural sector has given its hand to its surrounding, and by investing in its own development, the conversation has begun to change society for the better. For me, this program is wind in the back through the wide open door. #support #networks #altruism
