The Link Mentor Beachwalk

The Link Mentorship Program

by Melissa L. Schlimm

Head freshened up by the 💨wind, mind opened by the 🌊sea and feet stimulated through the 🏖️sand under our feet.

That was The Link Barefoot Beachwalk for our mentor tandems.

Although Christmas is around the corner, we had committed mentors and mentee show up to experience their mentor tandem in a mindful environment, ready to walk the extra mile. The Link Mentorship Walk is an event where Simone Lawrence and Melissa Schlimm partnered up with Lucy Kidd an Executive Coach and Facilitator who specializes in barefoot beach walks. A barefoot beach walk is a multi-sensory experience that can add enormous value to a mentoring and/or coaching conversation. To read more about the impact of walking and talking check the comments below. The idea: Mentoring partners were all invited to meet at the DubaiOffshoreSailingClub (DOSC) in Jumeirah to hold their mentoring meeting in a walking style together with all of Cohort 7.

Why? This was our way to bring our The Link Community together before year-end, to have another mentoring meeting together as mentor/mentee and experience mentoring in a whole new light.
