Discussion on: My approach to mentoring junior team members

This is all great. The 'each person is different' is especially important.

The only thing I would add is that 'junior' is a relative term and this doesn't just apply to new-grad/new-hires. Mentoring doesn't stop because learning doesn't stop. I've mentored people with 5-10 years of experience and I continue to be the mentee today - the subject matter changes but the general approach doesn't.

Thank you! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

And you do have a point. Learning certainly never stops. And everyone can be a mentor to another person simply because they have more knowledge of a certain skill. I just happened to mostly be teaching and mentoring more inexperienced developers up until this point.

Maybe on day that will change. :)
