Think for a moment about your experience in facilitating someone else’s learning.  Did it go well? Were there some things you could have done better? Chances are if you are like most mentors, you could become even more adept at facilitation.  Help is on the way:

1. Reflect on your experience in facilitating someone else’s learning.

What were the factors that affected the success or derailment of your efforts?

What lessons did you learn from that experience?

What, if anything, would you do differently in facilitating your mentee’s learning?

2. Observe people you know who are really good facilitators.

What are some of the specific things they say or do really well to facilitate learning?

3. What goals could you set for yourself that would help you become more adept at facilitation?
