Mentoring in Various Cultures
christine Tuitoek, Kenya, Member
In African culture especially in our region, mentoring is very important for the growth of a child. It is carried out at an early stage or let me say unconsciously by the parents, aunties or uncles of the child.
Mentoring brings about good family values and excellent upbringing of any child. We believe mentoring is a unique way of instilling societal and family values and standards to the young ones by the grown up adults.
 

 
My Wonderful Mentors
Dr. Alan Williams, Professor, Thailand, Member
Just to share personal experiences on mentoring. I joined an oil multinational as a management trainee 45+ years ago. At that time the company had a wonderful mentoring activity but I was more than lucky, I had a wonderful mentor in Australia and because I was quickly assigned to a project team working two weeks in Aust., and two weeks in Singapore, for 2 years, my Australian mentor asked an old company friend in Singapore to also be my mentor. He was a wonderful old Chinese man who shared many wonderful insights into corporate work and life and life in general. Both mentors always kept regular contact with me, both were good listeners and both had lots of things to share that, at my young age, I was very nave about. They often followed up / returned to previous conversations to keep me focused. I had both western and oriental flavor and I have no doubt it put me into a direction which ultimately brought me success in business and in personal life.

I would love to hear from Dr. Alan Williams about the benefits of having Mentors from different cultures, and even more so in a multinational company.
