Creating a Mentoring Map

We all have stereotypes about what a mentor is and what we might long for in a mentoring relationship.  We tend to think of mentors in a formal way, perhaps as long-term relationships.  It’s important to recognize, however, that we likely have less formal mentors in our daily lives already.  This is not necessarily someone who is senior to you or who guides you over the long term. This activity will help people think more deliberately about who these people are and where we might have room for additional mentoring relationships.
