Mentoring

What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is a dynamic, supportive relationship between two individuals which exists to develop the mentee either within their current role or for the future. Mentoring differs from coaching in that it takes a holistic view of the mentee, is an on-going relationship and the agenda is usually set by the mentee with the mentor providing support and guidance. Mentoring is available to a diverse range of employees and cross-organisational, cross-professional and peer mentoring relationships are encouraged.

Reciprocal mentoring is a great way to enhance the awareness, breadth and learning of individuals. It is a genuine learning exchange, a two-way relationship established between individuals that come from diverse organisational, professional, generational and/or cultural backgrounds. This two-way relationship is not based on seniority or status; it is entirely driven by the individuals involved to meet the specific learning needs of both parties.
