Many times, people overthink mentorship.
The relationship does not have to be formal,
however, it needs to be clear.

Mentorship Matters

In order to make it great, ensuring mutual meaning and benefit to both the parties involved requires effort, understanding, and flow.




“In my years of creating this program I found, with structure, follow up and enthusiastic willingness of both parties, mentorship is sustainable for the long term.”

– Tina Fox, Creator, TERN Mentoring
