Mentoring programme design during a pandemic is no different to how you would normally develop and design a programme. However, there are certain tweaks you need to make to ensure the programme flexes to some of the constraints and challenges of this Covid-19 time. Here are our top tips of what to be aware of when designing a mentoring programme currently.
A quarter of the world’s population is now in lockdown. Lis Merrick explores the situation and offers a perspective on what employers can do in this extraordinary chaos. Exploring mentoring through the lens of William Bridges’ Model of Managing Transitions1, she proposes the greatest gift an employer can give at this time is a mentor to support through these incredulous changes in our lives caused by the Covid-19 virus.
In this engaging and experiential Coaching at Work Masterclass, Lis Merrick will consider how to design and develop a mentoring approach within an organisation. She will explore the different models, dynamics and uses of mentoring globally and the key steps to create a really robust and effective programme. Watch the introductory video.

What is Talent Management?
As long ago as 2005, Brewster et al defined talent management as occurring on a global basis. It is a far broader concept than a series of international assignments for young potential. They describe a picture of being able to retain and attract the best talent anywhere in the world. Global brands like Diageo, Shell and Rolls Royce attach great importance to developing a positive brand for potential recruits.
