Abstract [en]

Purpose

– The purpose of this paper is to describe a useful mentorship experience from the perspective of the current author. It is a one case study at the same time as it opens up for reflections on mentorship in a variety of contexts with implications for academia.

Design/methodology/approach

– Storytelling and reflections for the sake of reviving the notions of mentorship in academia by paying tribute to a trusted mentor.

Findings

– The story is about how the mentorship evolved as part of a friendship relation, but the story has also implications for how mentoring can be developed as a personal strategy.

Originality/value

– Mentoring can either be planned as a deliberate process or it can just happen, growing out of experiences from working with another person.
