Just because you’re working alone – You don’t have to work by yourself
We’re all “remote workers” now - confined to our laptops, either working on our regular jobs, or freelance, or “gig” workers. How do we stay motivated, on purpose, and productive in our new virtual workplace?
Imagine that you had a “guardian angel”? like a coach by your side, cheering you on, keeping you on target.
Peer Mentoring™ is a system in which two people agree to support each other based on complementary skills and needs, and the partners create a ‘contract.’ The purpose of this process is to create a productively paired ‘buddy system’ to help both of you achieve your individual goals.
In the Peer Mentoring process, people identify their own resources and those of others (using our Skills and Resources Inventory) and then create specific strategies for mutual goal achievement. It is a new adaptation of the age-old concept of reciprocity + barter practiced by all cultures.
Elaina created and has used the Peer Mentor process with audiences and groups all over the world; as a learning accelerator, a success technique. a team building process and as a model for collaboration. Her new book “YOUX2” about the process and its origins, is now available as an e-book and in paperback. Now she is delighted to bring those ideas to members of SMM and TMN.
She will describe the process, how it works, and how it is different from and similar to other forms of “help” – coaching, mentoring, etc.and then Then she will guide some interactive exercises to give participant an experiential sense of how it might be helpful for individuals, teams and organizations.
Of course there will be time for Q + A.
