I've been mentoring/having chats with people who reach out to me for quite a few years. Last year I thought it was going to be a good idea to make a post this on LinkedIn:
It turns out it didn't work quite as I expected. I had lots of lovely chats and met quite a few people, but something was missing for me. I like to follow up and spend time with people I am invested in, so I want to try something new this year.
This year, I would like to mentor six design or product professionals on a mentorship cycle until DEC 2021. I will do one session a month with each individual. And I will select all six mentees via an application process. This will be 100% free (if we book our chat in a coffee, I will get that too).
The goal will be diving deep with every individual into their skills, strengths/weaknesses, career goals and aspirations, and personal development.
I don't have all the answers, but I learned some things, and I believe I can help you if you are:
- wanting to move to design or product from other fields
- thinking about becoming leaders/managers
- wanting to refine your design or product craft
- wanting to build your confidence
- just feel you need support you are not getting at work
If you are keen to join this journey/experiment with me this year, fill in the application below and hopefully we will chat. Also, I will prioritize applications from traditionally under-represented groups in design and technology, but that doesn't mean you won't be selected.
Thank you for reading.
