Apprenticeship Vs Internship – Gray Cook Lecture – Gray Cook Mentorship
A different from his normal lectures, in this short session, Gray Cook talks about professionalism…how we can think and behave in ways the reflect well toward our peers and our clients.
“A mentorship is over whenever you decide you’re done, when your mentor leaves the room or if you break up the relationship, but that doesn’t mean you’ve completed a mentorship. That doesn’t mean you’ve ingested everything the mentor has to teach you. It just means that due to time or financial constraints, you’re no longer in the presence of this person, but you’re going to drop the mentor’s name in your future business dealings because you’ve been exposed to somebody who’s noteworthy.
“An apprenticeship is over when you’re really good at what you’re studying. That’s when the apprenticeship is over. I think we can be ‘apprenticed’ by people or by a framework laid down by someone. It’s very important to have that framework. I want to talk about Don Miguel Ruiz’s Four Agreements as a professional framework.” ~Gray Cook
