Mentoring

Mentoring can be one of the most influential, life-changing, inspiring opportunities for both a mentor and mentee.  Whether you are a young person starting your career, are older and planning the last phase of your working life, or happen to be somewhere in between, a mentor can help you discover your path and guide you along the way.

 

Mentoring is often confused with coaching or instructing, resulting in the real value from the relationship being diluted.  Mentoring is a skill in its own right, requiring discipline and a generous spirit (only in terms of time!).  The process is driven by a mentee who has chosen to work with a mentor to help them develop further.  The upside is that mentors usually end up learning as much as the mentee during the process. While the time commitment is small, the impact can be huge.

 

The Mentoring at Work programme is customised to each organisation’s specific needs.  The solution you choose will depend on your resources and capability in this area, which means you only need to use the parts you need.  

 

Part 1 – PREPARE FOR SUCCESS

  • Find the driver of your programme and other key stakeholders

  • Identify the competencies that will drive success

  • Identify and engage the mentors and mentees

  • Establish a process that will work for your organisation

  • Prepare a communication plan

 

Part 2 – IMPLEMENT

  • Matching mentors and mentees

  • Train the mentors

  • Train the mentees

  • Get traction and support

  • Follow up and drive the process

 

Part 3 – KEEPING IT REAL AND RELEVANT

  • Tools to check in on progress and outcomes

  • Evaluate impact for the individual and for the organisation

  • Keep the ball rolling

The delicate balance of mentoring someone is not creating them in your own image, but giving them the opportunity to create themselves.
