Not long to go before tonight's #OTalk! This is @colourful_ot on the account for tonight, just checking in with our 10 minute reminder and a quick refresher on how our chats work and our usual rules 😀
#OTalk @OTalk_
Our host (@BillWongOT) will be posting questions, which you can also check out on our website below; everyone else taking part will be replying to these questions using the hashtag #OTalk https://t.co/WF7JsA6Jpd
#OTalk @OTalk_
Our rules are mostly common sense: 💚be kind 🏥 follow social media guidelines from your employer, RCOT and HCPC 🤫 respect patient privacy and confidentiality #⃣ don't forget the hashtag - #OTalk, with one T - so that we can see your Tweets and include them our transcript!

@BillWongOT Hello #OTalk lovely to be back this week! I think mentors are so important because they can offer a space to explore our interests and can also be so inspiring. I have learnt so much from some of my (usually unofficial) mentors

@BillWongOT Great point of view, don't really have an experience on that to share, hopefully some of the students who follow us have eheh #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@thisisnix @GeorgiaVineOT for sure- it's a delicate balance. Sometimes mentors need to step in also when the mentees are overambitious or overestimating their capabilities. #otalk

@JennaPatten you need to make your tweets public and put in the #otalk hashtag.

@BillWongOT 'Triple T' on mentor qualities: 🔘Transparency. 🔘Trust. 🔘Target-supporting. #OTalk 💚
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@WonderingOT yes- I think mentors should be enthusiastic to mentor you. It should not feel a chore. Also, compassion is important because there are times mentees need support to get back up on their feet during their professional journeys. #otalk

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@thisisnix yes- transparency is important too. I know there are times I ask my CPD mentors about what I could be in for if I choose to pursue certain things in my OT journey. I want to hear their unbiased opinions first before listening to their experiences. #otalk
OT Nix 💙 @thisisnix
💯 Agree. 💚👇 #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@chaniedavies @WonderingOT the third point is a good one. I remembered when I first started out in OT, I just wanted to have a smooth sailings and rather plain and ordinary career. But, my mentors told me about the importance of consistently growing as an OT practitioner! #otalk

Totally agree with this, the stage of life in the moment and what we aim to achieve is very important to choose between formal and informal. #Otalk

@BillWongOT Really enjoyed the discussions! Thank you #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@SPOTeurope For example, a common advice I received in the early days of qualifying is to present my work abroad (as my mentees knew the impact of my work professionally). But, they left me to experiment where to take such, which is fine with me. #otalk

@BillWongOT I think it is good to have a mixture of both. I think its good to have regular informal chats but then ensure formal ones take place too. The lengths can vary depending on the individual and their requirements. #otalk
Robert Workman @RobW_OT
@BillWongOT Mentoring, just like everything we do, must be individualised & fluid to change over time. There is no right way to do it, just the right way for you #OTalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@OT_Rhiannon in my early days of mentoring, I do informal. So, I meet OT students every 3 months via lunch. Now I am doing formal, I think it's important to get feedback from my mentees if they feel it is too one sided. #otalk

Loved learning about CPD mentors in @BillWongOT #OTalk tonight... & it’s something I’m keen to know more about for my career. So a couple of Qs- 1. How do find a mentor that suits you? 2. Do you have the same mentor throughout your career? 3. Where can I go to learn more?!

Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@RobW_OT for sure about fluidity. I got to know more about myself through my experiences in OT. Hence, I would replace CPD goals that are no longer realistic for me from time to time. #otalk
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@RobW_OT One thing for sure I have told my CPD mentors over the years- I have stamina and passion to be AOTA president some day, BUT my leadership skills make me a poor fit for a 3 year term. I don't wanna be US OT's version of Donald Trump! #otalk

@BillWongOT Tonight’s discussion has been Trumptastic 🤣 #OTalk https://t.co/tFUhHguOsI

@celiabentleyOT 2. The answer would be no. Life happens during our careers. I had to think about who to replace my late CPD mentor almost 7 years ago because she passed away. So, I spent 2-3 months searching for the right ones. #otalk

@RobW_OT At this stage of my career, I know how to sit at power tables at OT conferences already (at RCOT and CAOT) when I attend them as international guest. But, being the lead dog for TEDx events have told me that I don't fit well as a future AOTA president. #otalk

@celiabentleyOT At that time, I have a pretty good network already. So, I had a top 5 or 10 list from what I remember. So, I just went down the line based on my preferences. #otalk
Ros French @RosFrench1
@chaniedavies @WonderingOT @BillWongOT #OTalk totally agree both roles are important formal and informal both have there place
Bill Wong, OTD, OTR/L @BillWongOT
@celiabentleyOT @chaniedavies @OTalk_ I think it depends. If you have a formal program, the program will do the pairing for you. If you prefer informal, it's OK to feel the persons you want to target out first for a while before you pop the question. #otalk

@NoraDempsey3 Despite all the stuff that I do in OT, I prefer to be laid back as well. I try to have a balance of that and some seriousness so that I can cater to a wild range of people when I provide CPD mentoring. #otalk
