Course Description

What is Mentoring? Is mentoring the same as coaching? What is the difference between mentoring, coaching and counselling?
Who should be a mentor and what should mentors do?

Mentoring @ Work is a dynamic one day introduction to mentoring and mentorship,
that answers all these questions and more!

Mentoring @ Work empowers team leaders and managers to:
• Understand how mentoring can be beneficial to themselves, mentees, teams and the organisation
• Mentor candidates in the workplace to empower them to achieve personal and professional success
• Mentor candidates using a structured, simple, effective method
Mentoring in the workplace offers many benefits, including quicker on-boarding time for new recruits, the development of a culture of learning in an organisation, improved cross-functional understanding and insight, individual development resulting in the achievement of career objectives and retention of key talent.
Not only can a mentoring programme boost the performance of mentees, but research shows that mentors are also usually more productive; less stressed; gather valuable perspective from younger employees, and develop a loyal network of supporters that form a talent pool that they can draw on in the future.
Give your team leaders and managers the skills to empower change and success!
