We believe that traditional mentoring, where a senior manager sponsors a young high-flying protege, is out-dated and divisive. We see no reason why everyone should not be seen as capable and worthy of development. We have therefore created an innovative new approach so that everyone can have a mentor.We have developed this in conjunction with several organizations and are able to offer it more widely.
It is a serialised mentoring pack, containing 15 issues that guide you through the stages of mentoring. You can make a photocopy of each issue and pass it on to your mentor. You then use them together as the basis for each mentoring session.Issues contain all you need to know to establish and maintain a successful mentoring relationship over a period of about 12 months (or longer if you meet less often). They include guidance on the stages of mentoring, practical explanations of various theoretical models and models and frameworks and how to apply them, plus a range of questionnaires and other activities that will ensure you get the most out of the mentoring process.
