This episode is part of a series celebrating #NationalMentoringMonth. Lots of research on mentoring has helped dispute some myths, but there are still many common misconceptions that hold organizations back from implementing mentoring programs and as a result hold people back from participating in them. Karol Taylor leads a myth-busting conversation with two mentor and mentee pairs from NCDA’s pilot mentoring program: Christian Chan and Yangyang Liu, and Missy Wheeler and Ashley Osborne. The discussion explores expectations of participating in a mentoring relationship, and strategies for building these relationships in your own career with curiosity, commitment, and caring.
