Are you using your knowledge and skills to mentor others?

Mentoring is one of the most powerful tools for developing others. Mentees have found that mentoring has:

  • Guided them around major procedural obstacles and pitfalls
  • Significantly influenced their attitudes and professional outlook
  • Widened their professional networks
  • Enhanced their training and career development
  • Improved their performance and results by challenging their assumptions

It’s not just mentees that benefit. Learning and practising mentoring skills makes mentors better leaders, communicators and human beings. And that translates through to benefits for the organisation.

Research shows that employee retention rates are higher for those who are engaged in mentoring. And mentees are promoted five times more often than those not in a mentoring programme.

But sharing your knowledge and experience in a way that motivates and empowers can be a challenge.

How do you structure the conversation?
What questions should you ask?
How do you motivate and empower others to take ownership for their own development?

The Mentoring Toolkit does the heavy lifting for you.

Quality mentoring conversations rely on powerful questions and useful models. But it can be hard to always have these at your fingertips. The Mentoring Toolkit does the heavy lifting for you.

What does the Mentoring Toolkit Contain?

At the heart of any mentoring relationship is a conversation. So, the core mentoring tools and techniques are ones that enable and help conversation. We draw on a range of frameworks, approaches and techniques. The Mentoring Toolkit provides you with a core set of mentoring conversation tools to start with.

Underpinning these tools are three key principles:

  1. Help mentees identify what success looks like
  2. Help mentees identify what’s already working
  3. Help mentees produce ideas and alternatives for making progress

The toolkit provides practical conversation tools that empower the mentee and help them identify a way forward. The toolkit also provides a framework that mentors can use to turn a “chat” into a purposeful, valuable discussion.

The models and tools of mentoring will go a long way to help me better support and guide my mentees and colleagues.

The content is great; the tools are practically relevant. Now, I have got some wonderful new tools in my mentoring toolbox, and I know they are relevant for where I am now and where I am going tomorrow.

I had a first meeting with my mentee recently and found it very helpful to use the mentoring tools. And for the second meeting, my mentee will be describing what she calls her ‘perfect space’ that is her vision for the future and long-term outcome. I wouldn’t even have thought of starting out this way without the workshop training and toolkit.
