Mentoring isn’t just useful for the person you’re assisting, it’s great for you in a variety of ways. It provides that wonderful feeling you get when you help someone and make a difference in his or her life. In addition, it can help your career. You’ll be challenged to stay at the top of your game to provide your charge with up-to-date advice. This will make you even better at what you do and a more valuable employee to your boss.
The objectives of this bite are to help participants:
- What is mentoring?
- Establish the barriers to and the benefits of mentoring
- Discover the four base model of mentoring
- Create a plan for effective mentoring
We set the scene by reviewing mentoring as a development tool, before looking at the challenges and the benefits of a successful mentoring programme. We explore mentoring in an organisational context and the position of the mentor within the company. We consider the purpose and scope of relationships including the responsibilities of both mentor and mentee. Our focus then turns to the skills of a mentor in a learning and developmental capacity, before concluding with feedback best practice.
