New mentors typically face three key challenges – (1) Framework – they are not sure how to begin a mentoring conversation or how to structure the discussion; (2)Tools and Techniques – they don’t know what questions to ask or how to motivate and empower others to take ownership for their own development; (3) Skills – mentoring requires a new approach to conversation of which they have limited experience.
