How mentoring works

How mentoring works

By Phoebe Blank and Chris Molnar

Mentoring Young Persons 

What has been your mentoring experience? I commenced working alongside Chris in July 2016. Chris has been a great mentor. We have an informal long term mentoring style which often involves informal discussions in our office about client matters or interesting areas of employment law. We can bounce ideas off each other for an unfiltered opinion. As a young practitioner, it is easy to have multiple ideas and thoughts about a matter and a good mentor will help you see which ideas are better than others. How does long-term mentoring differ from short-term mentoring? The benefit of long-term mentoring is that mentors have the chance to constantly encourage you to step outside your comfort zone and provide advice on a regular basis. They can also see your progress, and this helps as a marker for you, as a mentee, to know that you are improving and growing as a practitioner. Chris has encouraged me to attend various events and discussion groups I did not know existed, as well as provided me with career advice and kept me up to date with opportunities.
