Today on the Datanauts podcast, we land on planet Mentorship to drive around in our exploratory rovers. Why? Mentoring came up on Twitter a while back.
Some of you are for it. You invest in your co-workers and your organization by sharing with others what you know. Some of you are against mentoring, arguing that you don’t have the time and aren’t getting paid to teach other people.
And then the Twitterverse connected us to Don Jones, who wrote a book called, “Be The Master.” Seems like a great excuse to fire up the microphone on our rovers and explore planet Mentorship in more detail.
Besides being an author, Don is an an IT pro and PowerShell expert who has created a variety of PowerShell training materials.
We talk about how a master/apprenticeship approach can be more effective than formal education, selfish reasons for being a mentor, how to address imposter syndrome, and how to get support for mentorship at work.
