More About You!
We read through each of these responses and appreciate when people demonstrate effort on their application. A 500ish word response usually does the trick.
What type of work do you do? (Sector, General Scope)
Why do you want to mentor a group of Fellows?
StartingBloc asks Fellows to return and mentor to:
1. Create smaller communities of trust and relationship within the larger Fellowship community
2. Support incoming Fellows with challenging or delicate issues throughout the Institute
3. Ensure that current Fellows have pathways for continual leadership development in this community
Given that framing, what strengths do you bring to mentoring at StartingBloc?
Are you comfortable facilitating small group discussion and workshops?
If you have experience in facilitation and/or coaching please let us know here.
