Mentoring is process of a menetor sharing values and life experience with another person in a deeply impactful relationship that transforms the mentee over many months or years.
This mentoring process is not one that can be bypassed for those who wish to become a mentor. The chief credential needed to be a mentor is to have been mentored.
In our community we invite men for being mentors only once they have been through a vigorous mentoring process with an existing Mentoring.men mentor or coach.
This ensures that we consistently reproduce our shared values, vision, and ethos and that we know well the men who are operating in this capacity.
In addition to being mentored, we also invite men who we have recognized among our community as men already organically mentoring others. The leaders among us.
