BEFORE THE NEW BEGINNING OF “CREATIVE MENTORSHIP”
Imagine how valuable it would be to stumble upon someone who just passed through the next year on the New Years Eve – maybe he would advise you, warn you, tell you an anecdote that would made you inpatient to wait for the new year to begin!
We marked the end of this year with a small gathering of alumni and new participants of the program “Creative mentorship” in which we wanted to hear exactly such stories, encounters of experiences at the transition from one cycle to another. New Year of “Creative Mentorship” begins in February 2018.
On Tuesday, December 26th, at one of our favorite places in the city, Sprat in Cetinjska street we gathered participants of programs of all previous generations and new participants who are just starting a new cycle of programs with us.
In order to make for the new generation as easy as possible at the very beginning of the program, we introduced them to our alumni members, from whom they could hear their experiences and advice regarding participation in the program.
At the beginning of CM year I was most afraid of: unknown :)… can I do this…will I fit in with the team?
During next year I see CM as: as the omnipresent strongest mentoring organization … As a great super group of different people, ideas, experiences. Knowledge, story, color, drawings, workshops, socializing, conversations … As a springboard in my personal development and a program that will give me inspiration to continue to fight for my goals!
If I was starting CM programme again: first I would make decission to work less, and spend more time with mentor…I would see programme as a support, wind in my back, socializing and new contacts, building better society and cultural scene… I would be happy to see myself, analyze and concentrate on things I love and I am passionet about, and I would meet with my mentor 2 times a month.
The most important advice to mentee before the start of the programme: Develop relationship of trust with your mentor…Leave the time to participate in all CM activities and enjoy!… Relax. What ever happens will be ok…Get over yourself. Let go. Be honest to yourself (it takes courage)…Be open, leave all prejudice behind, think what you would like to get as an outcome of this process and help your mentor…Meet all people you can…Define clever goal!
Belive, create, grow, ask and surprise yourself in new year of “Creative Mentorship”!
