A guiding hand: “If you had told me when I started this role 18 months ago, that I would be confidently doing what I am doing now in a year or so’s time, I wouldn’t have believed you. I did not think I had the necessary capability. Thank you for believing in me and supporting me, from the person I was then, to the one I am now”.
During 2022, the WWF global mentoring programme saw an increasing number of staff joining the programme from Africa, Asia and South/Middle America. 60% of mentees and nearly 30% of mentors came from the Global South. Regardless of location, mentees say that mentoring assisted them with work-related challenges, built skills on the job and made them more confident. Mentors were motivated by the programme and found it developed their leadership skills.
When I ask people to describe their current mentoring relationship, or a past mentoring experience, I find it fascinating how much the depth of these mentoring relationships can vary. So let’s explore the diversity of learning richness that can occur in mentoring relationships and whether mentoring is just a nice chat, or a conversation with a purpose?

What is the point in mentoring training and what should you cover? Can you not just ‘lump’ the mentors in with your coaches, or dispense with the training, as “everyone understands mentoring”?
This blog explores the importance of mentoring training, its key components and the similarities and differences with coach training.
Being a mentor during the Covid-19 Pandemic is different. Everything we do currently is different. From working remotely for many, to how we socialise and shop. Most people, both at work and home, are experiencing a far greater level of stress than normal. Mentees can adopt a different practical emphasis, both to maximise the impact of their learning and to support them to thrive through the chaos. Mentors need new behaviours to support their mentees in more innovative ways. And organisations need the benefits of mentoring more than ever!
