Envisage: Our Assumptions
- Regular reassessment of an academic career path is important because the paradoxes and the competing demands within academia often create an unstable future.
- Timely decision making based on values and career goals is preferred over drifting and allowing the priorities of others to determine the timing of decisions important to you.
- Exploring the current circumstances relevant to a future goal provides a firm foundation for action toward that goals.
- While specific advice may be appropriate occasionally, powerful mentoring comes from insightful questions that encourage the participant to find their own direction.
- A focus on a few key goals that are compatible is essential to move forward in a crowded busy life.
- There are often many paths to a goal. Discussing the options most appropriate for the individual in a safe, non-judgmental conversations is often a critical step for good decision making.
- When options are explored, actions become clear, the role of the mentor-coach is reduced, self-belief grows and confidence takes the place of hesitance.
