The Nautical Institute is focusing on mentoring at sea in the latest edition of The Navigator, exploring how mentoring can, and has, enhanced careers and best practice.
Author Captain Andre Le Goubin contributes an article on how mentoring complements training and why the tradition must be continued. To encourage others to engage in practical mentoring, The Nautical Institute is asking readers to share their stories by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Emma Ward of The Navigator: ‘Life works better when we all pull together, and life at sea is no exception. Being able to share and benefit from each other’s knowledge for the good of the entire crew is a wonderful thing and should be encouraged.’
David Patraiko adding: ‘Mentoring doesn’t just improve safety and better commercial services, it also improves life on board. This simple act of kindness can reduce social isolation, help overcome language and cultural barriers and generally improve our working and living environment.’
