2]] What are the disadvantages of mentoring?
11 disadvantages:

1)) mentee told to be in the mentoring arrangement - forced into it

2)) mentee - mentor incompatibility (chemistry class, belief clash, mentor without lived experience pertinent to mentee request)

3)) multiple mentors at one time - conflicting insights - who do you listen to - unless you understand the practice of triangulation 

4)) perceived preferential assignment of mentor for mentee; less so mentee to mentor 

5)) perceived progress by personal bias - mentor perspective of the mentee-mentor becomes frustrated - which is contagious /// mentee wanting to move faster yet mentor expresses slow down to get there faster 

6)) if the mentor is not prepared - to serve as a mentor re does not have the necessary information walking into the mentoring arrangement - albeit it's for the mentor to gain the necessary insights (situation like poor performance or termination or forced re-skilling)

7)) dependence - reliance factor - mentee of the mentor, and the mentor misses the early cues 

8)) mentoring is not practiced throughout the organization - double standard

9)) the workplace situation of the mentee "arriving" - the likelihood of applying new learning "returning" - external mentor 

10)) familiarity - moving from mentor-acquaintance to mentor-friend - now what?

11)) prep issues - by mentor establishing structure; by mentee supporting the relationship

3]] American Idol - Speed Mentoring, Halo Effect
What Can American Idol Inform Us About Speed Mentoring and the Hallo Effect? 

New singers mentored by established singers
Watch for the halo effect ... when the mentee does what the mentor says because of success without discernment of the fitness of the mentor ideas for the mentee

Our products, services, and experiences – our programs/projects/packages – are intended to help you be for the world. Our programs take a lot of work and discipline just like any worthwhile endeavour or continuing education program. Please don’t enrol in our programs if you believe in the “money for nothing get rich quick” myth or ideology or "believe my life will shift because is the magical pill"; we only want serious people dedicated to real professional and personal development who want to add value and move humanity forward.
