Exam passed! – Finally I’m qualified!?

Employment-Office in Koblenz, 8:00 in the morning.
My first day at work as a newly graduated psychologist.
Dr. Herter was the psychologist who would train me for the coming year.

I was excited and really proud.

Looking back, I know that I was lucky to end up with him. Honestly, I had no idea about anything. Dr Herter, on the other hand, was knowledgeable, experienced, intelligent and creative.

What he knew and was capable of, he shared freely and had fun doing so.

Our friendly student-mentor relationship laid the foundation for my later development, for which I am infinitely grateful to him.

Our relationship taught me how important a good relationship is for personal learning, growth and change.

From our relationship, I also learned how profitable it is for the mentor to freely share his skills and knowledge.

Today, I enjoy it when I can help younger colleagues a little further on their path, following in Dr Herther’s footsteps.
