No, don’t worry, this is not digging up Star Wars trilogy. The above segment was in relation to my article today, Mentor and Mentee, Obi-Wan-Kenobi in the Star Wars trilogy was a Mentor to Anakin Skywalker, his protege a.k.a known as the Mentee. In the later part of the trilogy, Obi-Wan-Kenobi continued Mentoring another Skywalker, he is Luke, son of Anakin Skywalker.
Bringing back to reality and real life, what is a Mentor ? what is a Mentee ? Is a Mentor your trusted friend, counsellor, teacher, experienced professionals, personal development coaches ? A Mentee on the other hand is a student of the Mentor, sometimes called a protege.
In today’s fast paced and constantly changing working environment, how are you facing up to the challenges of the current situation and future ? Are you ready for constant changes and new developments ? Are you ready to take them on – the new challenges ahead ? What are the area of concerns for you ? Career ? Personal Development ? Pay -It-Forward ? Professional upgrading education ? Networking ? Mentoring is present across different disciplines, careers, industries, that is how dynamic and wide scope it can reach out, yet it can be just as disciplined and focused in the field you are operating/working in.
