  Yvette Guigneaux: (12:18) ok Herb

  Bernard Turcotte Staff Support: (12:19) I think this a very wise and practical approach

  avri doria: (12:24) problem with that is the old folks are really the overloaded ones.  and even those of us that do mentor find it to be yet another task.

  Olga Cavalli: (12:24) good point we do informal mentoring in latin america with gac colleagues

  Olga Cavalli: (12:25) avri is right about overload of work

  avri doria: (12:25) there is also active and passive mentorship.  i do a lot of passive.  will answer any question (yes i admit to being one of the old folks) but do not do active mentoring where i advise unbidden.

  Yvette Guigneaux: (12:25) Hand up - from Bernie

  avri doria: (12:26) so if we suggest menoring we should specific about what we are suggesting.

  Bernard Turcotte Staff Support: (12:26) correct

  avri doria: (12:26) comes yet another work item to be handled.
