Mentoring

What is it?

The secret to being a great mentor lies in trust, honesty, and unconditional acceptance that sets no expectations.

With a special relationship the right person can help anyone - young people; people at work; achievers in sport; current business leaders - in fact anyone who strives to change, to improve or to become the best they can be.

Mentoring is about relationship building - based on acceptance, affirmation and respect. It is a relationship that is deliberate, often planned and managed, with transparent goals and objectives. Both people will benefit from the relationship.

Thus, mentoring can be defined as an enduring relationship between two people where one person acts as a guide and support for the other.

Today, mentoring involves more than master / apprentice learning roles. This may still reflect how many people still define coaching. However in our view, today's world of performance management makes little differentiation between both coaching and mentoring as long as the relationship focuses on collaborative results.

Mentoring comes under two categories - natural and managed. While it is accepted that there is a natural aptitude for mentoring, this does not always mean successful mentoring. And like all natural talents, they can be improved and enhanced with specific training and the appropriate use of our profiling tools.

With the help of structured programmes, managed mentoring will provide the right tools and training to achieve outstanding outcomes for the mentoring relationship.
