“We’ve had some very senior figures, from managing directors through to middle management, attend the Programme and it has been brilliant.”
A key challenge facing organisations is getting the best out of their employees. Organisations lose thousands of pounds due to attrition, underperformance and poor employee engagement. What if you could help your people feel fulfilled and rewarded with a sense of purpose? What if you could inspire them to want to perform beyond their current levels? What if you could help them be more self-reliant and less dependent on you? If you ask any successful business person, they will always have had a great mentor at some point. We can help you and your people feel the same way.
In today’s business environment, leaders and managers need to do more and more with less and less. Do you wish that your people were more self-reliant and took more ownership and responsibility? The Mentoring for Leaders Programme will give you some practical tools and skills to help. As a result, you will support them to become more motivated, more proactive and more productive.
The Mentoring for Leaders Programme is a series of workshops and support over 6 months. It helps leaders develop their mentoring skills and integrate them into their leadership style.
The Mentoring for Leaders Programme will help you:
The Programme will benefit mid- to senior-level leaders who wish to adopt a less directive style of leadership. Their aim is to create an organisational culture focussed on empowerment and development.
The programme is designed to encourage learning and development at 3 levels:
The facilitated workshops help leaders develop their mentoring skills by having real conversations. They leave with practical tools and techniques they can try out in the workplace. We hold Workshops at 6-8 week intervals to maintain momentum while providing enough time to apply the learning.
Participants develop skills through applying their learning back in the workplace and reflecting on that experience.
Quality conversations with an external coach who can act as a role model are invaluable.
The agenda for the Programme is:
Workshop 1: Introduction to OSKAR, a Practical Mentoring Toolkit
Follow Up Day 1: Using a Mentoring Style of Leadership to Manage and Develop Performance
Empowering conversations about performance can make a huge difference. In this session, we look at what employees can learn from past performance and apply to achieve future results.
Follow Up Day 2: Mentoring in groups and teams
In this session, we’ll look at how we can apply the principles and tools we’ve already explored in a group or team setting.
Final Review Day: Developing a culture of mentoring within your organisation
A key role of leaders is to support and develop leadership at all levels. Developing a culture of mentoring within the organisation helps achieve this. In this session, we will look at the steps you can take to develop this style of leadership across the organisation.
