powerphrase_icon2I accepted a request to mentor someone in an association I belong to, but wasn't really comfortable with the term mentoring. Then I remembered what the Army calls the mentoring program I worked with them to develop. They call it:

  • Progressive partnerships

The Army created a program that recognized the fact that learning goes both ways, even when one person has much more experience than the other. So my mentee and i talked about the wording and agreed to a progressive partnership model for our new relationship.

My clients at the Army are very savvy to abut the importance of word choice.
