Mentoring the Sojourner

Sojourner: A person who comes into a new cultural space, often with very clear goals to stay only temporarily.

Mentoring often involves careful consideration of cultural factors including individual, organisational and professional cultures.

Mentoring across cultures can be both challenging and rewarding. Cross Cultural Consultants works with a range of organisations to design and deliver mentoring programs for staff in challenging situations, new positions, first-time workers and those for whom cultural issues may be a barrier. This includes people posted to a different country or culture and/ or those working with coworkers or counterparts from a different culture.

Cross Cultural Consultants’ mentoring programs have a flexible, non-judgmental approach that ensures both mentor and mentee make the most of the opportunities for learning and development. It is focused on skills and tools for:

  • recognising and dealing with practical issues,
  • working from the strengths of the pupil to develop knowledge, skills, values and qualities to support sustainability,
  • advocacy and support

Practical tools, referrals and partnerships are provided as required.

Cross Cultural Consultants also offers mentoring training workshops either as in-house or public programs.
