Hi all,

For those of you located in the northern hemisphere: Happy Summer! And if you happen to be in the southern hemisphere, then Happy winter!

As usual, I'm sharing with you few info, articles, links which you might find relevant, or not. But, at least, it might feed your never-ending reflection and curiosity.

The Mentoring and Coaching Hub Oslo (MCHub Oslo: providing related know-how and support to the MSF movement) is up and running. We are now 7 team members, super motivated to deliver more for the years to come!
NB: Ruth Wester -no picture here- has also joined the team, until the end of 2017.
Mariana will soon take a leave, as she will be busy welcoming a new family member ;)
And Alain Rias will officially become the new OCB Mentoring programme Manager from the 1st November 2017, based in Oslo.

If you would like to know more about the MCHub Oslo, do not hesitate to contact us!

Take good care of yourselves.

We have a important announcement:

Since the end of 2016, we have submitted the existing OCB Mentoring programme to the ISCMP accredidation process.

I would like to thanks all the Mentors and Mentees who have been involved since day 1 (early February 2012): you are all amazing people who made it happen!

We want immediate feedback – even when it’s negative (at least, I do)
2 good articles which summarize well why Feedbacks are important. But also pointing at issues like:
  • this is what most employee want!
  • one needs to be trained to give proper feedback
  • Giving Feedback Isn’t enough
  • Feedback should be followed up with actionable tips on how to improve.
If you "already know", then this article is not for you
  …”Your biggest barrier to learning is your own ego. We live in a sea of opportunity for learning through other people, yet we fail to see the opportunity due to three mental barriers:
  1. The belief that you already know
  2. The assumption that you are the smartest
  3. The need to be right

"Mentor People who aren't like you"
..."Those who look less like me might find it hard to share their concerns with me or ask for help. They might feel uncomfortable raising their hand if they aren’t sure I will identify with them. And it’s on me, as the leader, to help close that gap."...
