John’s experience of CLI mentoring in his own words
“You are helpful, for me, people caring about what I do makes me care more about what I do.
You are 100% reliable to my 50% reliable. Anything you say you’re going to do it gets done. I need to feel as though I can benefit from a situation to be able to engage with it and I have with CLI.
CLI have supported me with stability – you make something happen. It’s helped me to learn how to do things differently and break down barriers. You understand me, and I can talk about whatever I want, I have learnt how to defuse situations better than before. I see it as something to look forward to each week or every two weeks, even if it’s just having a coffee, I am bored a lot of the time and this is something to focus on.
