025 Discover The Secret Power of Mentorship with Myra Travin

While most educational settings are defined by the traditional classroom model, this isn’t the only modem of learning. Perhaps you learn better with auditory stimulation, learning by doing, or one-on-one training. The reality is that few of us naturally do our best in the traditional learning environment, but unfortunately that is essentially the only learning model that is offered, both in academic and business training settings.

According to Myra Travin, many individuals as well as large-scale businesses would be much more successful if they adopted a mentorship model. To Myra, this is a more female way of learning. Since men dominate so many business sectors, this female inspired mentor-mentee learning approach is rarely implemented.

Today I speak with Myra Travin, author of “School of You: Stop the Overload, Become a Guerrilla Learner and Change Your Life,” LX designer and technical coach, assisting organizations to be more resilient, creative, and supportive of the teams they are promoted to manage. Myra recently spoke at South by Southwest and will soon be presenting at the ICF Prism Awards about technical coaching: the Flow-Shift model. Today I talk with Myra about the benefits of coaching, how a woman’s intuitive perspective can aid companies in achieving success, and how she envisions the future of artificial intelligence.

What You’ll Discover in This Episode

  • How a mentor will benefit you and help you achieve your goals
  • How you can use your strengths as a woman to advance your business, entrepreneurial goals, or the company for whom you work
  • The right mentor ‘fit’ for you and how you can find her or him
  • What you as a woman can bring to a company or startup that would otherwise be lacking

More About Myra

Myra calls herself an “Educational Futurist.” This means she believes that as we develop artificial intelligence, education, mentorship, and connection will become integral to our functioning with this new intelligence. This emphasis on relational learning is at the core of her work. Myra views her path to be to find ways to include the female inclination toward relational learning and teaching into the tech world. And she is a unique voice in the tech industry. Women are highly underrepresented in startups, and Myra believes this is to the detriment of the tech industry as “women have something that is essential for the success of an organization.” She suggests that women have a very humanistic way of looking at the world, and her tech work attests to this.

Taking this concept to a more personalized level, Myra believes that education model would benefit from a more female, relationship transformation. Currently, large companies tend to value individual contributions and attainment of money, rather than valuing all employees and encouraging a sense of connectedness. This also hinders the possible development of mentor/mentee relationships, leading overall to less satisfaction in the workplace and failure to maintain employee retention. Myra feels that these issues could be overcome if we can teach the tech world and companies to value women’s contributions. The economy would expand in ways not previously seen and we would all benefit, in our jobs and in our general life satisfaction.

Describe one personal habit that contributes to your well-being:

I try to do the next best thing; take it day by day.

What super power did you discover you had only to realize it was there all the time?

Resilience and intuition.

What advice would you give to your 25 or 30 year old self?

Fasten your seatbelt, it’s going to be a hilarious ride. You can’t imagine. Surf on top of change. Chill and enjoy the ride.

More About Julia

Julia’s passion for creative expression began at a young age. When she attended college at Georgetown University, she felt called to write poetry and sought to be an English Major. In the 1960’s a literary career was not a traditional path for women, and Julia was met with barriers and discouragement again and again. When she wasn’t allowed to study English at the College of Arts and Sciences she started a women’s lib chapter at Georgetown. This movement ultimately led to Julia, along with seven other women, to be the first female graduates from the College of Arts and Sciences in 1970.

This perseverance has been both a conscious and unconscious theme throughout Julia’s life and career. There have been many obstacles Julia has had to overcome throughout her career as a woman writer and artist, but she admits that the discipline is something innate within her; she can’t help it. She also can’t help from writing; she finds that she is irritable and on edge when she is not in the midst of a creative project.

I caught Julia at one of those ‘difficult places’ when she isn’t quite sure what the next project will be. While it is not a comfortable state, it is a crucial time in Julia’s creative process. When she has no projects on the forefront she dedicates herself to ‘prayer through writing.’ She writes to her muse seeking out help, in the form of her ritual morning journal writing, or morning pages, and listens to see what that response is. Julia finds that she is often resistant to whatever it is that comes up. She will allow herself procrastinate on acting, dwelling in anxiety for a few more days before doing what she knows she must and listening to her inner voice, an experience I think we can all relate to.

Julia’s most recent projects include a play and the completion of her newest book, It’s Never Too Late to Begin Again: Creativity at Midlife and Beyond, co-written with Emma Lively. This book introduces a fourth creative ritual into those described in previous books (morning pages, artist’s date, and weekly walk), that of memoir writing. While aimed at an audience in the retirement stage of life, the tools Julia describes can be used at any age.

What super power did you discover you had only to realize it was there all the time?

Perseverance.

What advice would you give to your 25 or 30 year old self?

Start writing morning pages.
