Presented by Dr Kim Gilligan

This paper will explore my current research findings working with mentors and mentees. It will explore the power relationships (Foucault 1972) that can ensue in the mentoring process as a result of performativity agendas (Ball 2014) across many professions including nursing, teaching and social work. The paper will discuss Lyotard’s (1984 notion) of values’ schizophrenia and how through Mosaic Mentoring both mentors and mentees can benefit from a critically reflective process that foregrounds development needs not evaluation.
