Mentoring – Part 3 – Questions For Your Mentor

“A prudent question is one half of wisdom.” Francis Bacon

Here are a few questions from our Connection book that Greenie and I love to ask our mentors. And not just our mentors. If you have a few minutes or a meeting with someone who is wise and whose life that you admire, always be ready with a question!

  • Question One

What is one book you think every person should read?

  • Question Two

What is one practice that has changed your life for the better that you would recommend?

  • Question Three 

In this situation (insert an incident you observed) I notice you responded like this. How did you come up with that decision and why did you respond that way? 

  • Question Four

What is one practical thing you do to prioritise physical health in the midst of a busy career, ministry and family demands? 

  • Question Five 

Where do you feel I could develop the most in my life? 

There are more incredible questions on our connection book which you can purchase here.

I am passionate about questions!  

“One who never asks either knows everything or nothing.”  Malcolm Forbes. 

Go and find your mentors and ask them questions! 

Spend time thinking of excellent questions.

If you ask excellent questions you will get excellent answers. 

You are deeply loved and richly cherished,

Sometimes I imagine that Oprah is my mentor. I play it out in my head. We walk together. She calls me up and says “How’s my favourite girl?” We sun ourselves next to her pool in enormous black hats. Straw ones to be exact. Her personal chef brings us salmon and fresh steamed broccoli. We squeeze lemon on it from her organic garden. We read out loud together from the books we are both reading.  She and Stedman hold my kids. My kids call her Aunty Orpah… Yep. It all unfolds in my mind… Just like that.
