Mentoring Newsfeed
March 2017

Hi all,

Already March, and so I missed the opportunity to send you a Newsfeed in January, with our best Wishes for 2017.
Anyway, I hope the first 3 months of this year have been treating you well! ;)   

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

Earlier this months in Oslo, 11 experienced mentors from the 5 OCs have participated in Oslo to our 1st Mentoring Workshop Level 2! We keep developping the quality of our mentoring programmes, and offering new opportunities to our mentors in developping themselves too ! ;) 

Finally, the OCB mentoring programme has been running since 2012, with mainly positive feedback from all involved (mentees, mentors, HR colleagues in HQs). There has been increasing requests for providing more mentoring (New mentee's profiles), more coaching opportunities, as well as to increase the quality of the various processes. Then, the team in Oslo has been growing up: Marita Honerud and Agnese Pinto jumped in last year, and now Richard Veerman has also joined us a month ago. And few more will be recruited soon! ;)
We have now become the Mentoring and Coaching Hub Oslo (MCHub Oslo), providing related know-how and support to the 5 OCs.
If you would like to know more about the MCHub Oslo, do not hesitate to contact me!

Take good care of yourselves.

Oxytocin, Trust and Leadership...
My favorite article in a long time, "The Neuroscience of Trust" shall be a must read for MSF leaders and managers...not just because we are a medical organisation, but especially at a time sizes of teams (at HQ and Field Level) is constantly increasing, as well as a growing culture of "working in silos"

Leaders don't always know best  

To appear competent, many people will devise a solution without spending much time considering the actual issue. Instead, ask open-ended questions to try and tease out more information, and be ready to change your approach based on what you learn.
NB: down the article, enjoy the link to a short Dr House video ;)

More feedback = more engaged workers
Instead of waiting for the classic performance review (also called in MSF the famous mid-term or end of mission Evaluation), try to encourage people’s strengths by providing your colleagues with regular and specific feedback on how they are helping your team, the organization.

Strength is made Perfect in weakness
Sadness, discouragement, and disappointment aren’t topics we often discuss in leadership circles but we know from our own experience that these emotions are a part of life. More than likely either you or someone you know is going through a hard time right now.
