The YWLC Mentorship Programme 2020 officially launched its 11th cycle with the newest batch of 70 mentees and 52 mentors on 15 August. The virtual commencement this year featured the Mentors Panel with Minister Grace Fu (Minister for Sustainability and the Environment, Singapore) and Adeline Kim (Head, Data Solutions, Visa - Asia Pacific) who share their thoughts and insights on Mentorship.
Here are some key takeaway points:
Take time to develop the relationship with your mentor
Reverse-mentoring - do not go into the relationship with just your expectations; think about what you can possibly offer, understand your mentor and develop mutual trust. Mentors are also there to learn from you
Be truthful to yourself, ask yourself what makes you happy to pursue what you are doing. Everyone has a different yardstick of success.
