The Mentor+Game™ is a key tool for training mentors and mentees. This innovative and engaging game – based on the Mentor’s Many Roles – will help clarify the situational mentor roles and how each role can be used to address specific mentee needs.
The Mentor+Game™ is an engaging card game for mentors and mentees to:
- Explore situations they face during their mentoring partnership.
- Test how Mentor’s Many Roles can be used in different situations.
- Develop a common understanding of the mentoring relationship.
- Gain confidence in their role and become aware of how they can benefit from the mentoring relationship.
- Experience the dynamic of the mentoring relationship and experiment with Mentor’s Many Roles.
Mentor+Game™ – a powerful tool for increasing the impact of mentoring programmes
The Mentor+Game™ enhances the quality of the learning process for mentors and mentees. It is based on the 10 situational mentor roles, all of which aim to strengthen the mentor/mentee-relationship and increase the benefits of their conversations.
The Mentor+Game™ is an educational tool – based on the theory of experiential learning, – that involves the participants and enables shared reflections, constructive discussions, sharing of experiences and thus promoting a deeper understanding of themselves and the learning opportunities of mentoring.
