With the realities and challenges of today’s global workforce, organisations are investing in ways to grow their talent and prepare future leaders, create and sustain a culture of high-performance, and encourage continual learning and sharing.
The missing link between a promising employee and a successful one is having access to mentoring in a relationship that challenges and supports growth.
Developing mentors within organisation means that a learning environment is created where new, aspiring and talented junior to middle management employees can be supported on their development journeys and integration into their new executive position. Mentors share their corporate knowledge, wisdom and experience to help develop mentees who are recognised as having potential for growth.
A structured mentoring approach assists with integrating a company culture, developing a shared language, creating networks and ‘learning the ropes’. Mentoring programmes assist in building capacity within organisations to develop leaders, retain talent, improve performance, and change culture, thereby building a pipeline for future leadership within the organisation
However, mentoring is not simply a process of having interesting conversations. Specific skills need to be acquired by mentors to ensure that mentoring objectives are determined and achieved and that knowledge is turned into practice. A mentoring programmes trains mentors in those skills so that the company value out of creating a mentoring network.
We successfully design, facilitate and implement mentoring programmes, to guide organisations in the process from beginning to end.
