If you are interested in leading-edge mentoring programmes that are effective and provide a real return-on-investment, then don’t miss this opportunity to learn from international experts.
A quick look at how to get that healthy buzz back again
Are you supporting, motivating and creating the most effective mentoring relationships in your programme? Well, if you are like most organisations then you probably start off with great intentions of doing this through the life of your programme and start off with a flourish, but then budget constraints kick in, or other priorities take over and you find six months down the line your mentors haven’t had a check in or support or supervision since the programme launched.

Do you want to implement a new programme? Or enhance a programme you have already got running?
Mentoring is the most cost effective organisational development intervention you can use to develop, retain and motivate your employees. Bringing in external consultancy is not always an option, so based on our many years of developing and designing programmes we have produced a package to make you ‘experts’ overnight and to create the programme you need, quickly and hassle free.
Its Core Curriculum gives you a range of options, so if you do need a small element of consultancy support you can add this with the cost transparent upfront and with the intention of making you completely independent from day one! Continue reading →
The way mentoring programme design was approached ten years ago needs to be reconsidered in the light of more recent generational differences in the workforce. By 2020 half the working population globally will come from the generation born between 1980 and 2000. As generations evolve, so do the methods for training, developing, coaching and mentoring people. Mentoring someone from the Millennial Generation (sometimes known as Generation Y) is not textbook developmental mentoring as we have experienced it previously. Understanding Millennials’ quite different career and value expectations is key if mentors are going to provide the right type of support to them, as well as the form of mentoring that Millennials relate best to, in order for organisational mentoring programmes to be effective.
I’ve been shocked this week after some conversations at a conference about the number of organisations who are dismissing mentoring as ‘too labour intensive‘, ‘difficult to keep the energy in the programme‘ or just plain ‘ineffectual‘. Anyone who knows me and understands my passion for mentoring will immediately understand the emotional response this has created. In the seventeen years I have been working designing and developing mentoring programmes, I have found that organisations who are focused and structured in their approach to mentoring get amazing results and it is not difficult or particularly hard work if you know what you are doing.

Formal and informal mentoring relationships exist in many organisations. Within these mentoring relationships the mentor may take many roles: being a role model, a sounding board, helping build networks and career support, sometimes simply being there to listen and challenge. However, linked to mentoring, but with clear differences is the role of a sponsor. Is it actually more beneficial for a woman who is seeking to break through the ‘glass ceiling’ to have a sponsor rather than an organisational mentor? Or perhaps she should be greedy and have both!
