Mentoring for Success Programme

Gain practical tools and techniques to empower and motivate your mentees.

We’ve had some very senior figures, from managing directors through to middle management, attend the Programme and it has been brilliant.

New mentors typically face three key challenges – (1) They are not sure how to begin a mentoring conversation or how to structure the discussion; (2) They don’t know what questions to ask or how to motivate and empower others to take ownership for their own development; (3) Mentoring requires a new approach to conversation of which they have limited experience. Our Mentoring for Success Programme addresses all three challenges. It provides them with a framework, tools and techniques to structure a powerful mentoring conversation. Through experiential learning and practice they will gain experience and build their confidence. A supportive environment allows them to explore how they will apply their new skills back in the workplace.
