Part III: Seven Special Mentee Skills > Internalize Your Mentor’s Input

Chapter 31. Internalize Your Mentor’s Input

Research in education and training suggests that we can process what we have learned more successfully if we follow this four-step process:

Step 1: Sort out the learning and find where patterns appear (you may do this with your mentor, another person, or by yourself).
Step 2: Review in your mind the learning (particularly the larger patterns) very shortly after they occur. There tends to be a substantial loss of detail in one to three hours after a learning experience.
Step 3: Record in a journal the outcome after each mentoring session, tape record or draw diagrams if appropriate and focus on anything useful to reinforce your learning.
Step 4: Discuss ideas, viewpoints and other attributes of the learning with another person. (You can also share with or teach another person what you have learned, if appropriate.)
