Becoming A Mentor: Practices, Pitfalls and Proficiency
As organisations recognize the need to retain valuable corporate knowledge and history, individuals in organisations are increasingly being asked to mentor others. On the other side, as leaders and mature workers retire or choose to work part time, many are interested in sharing their years of experience and knowledge with others in their industry.
These partnerships can be significantly enhanced if the mentor has some skills in the art and science of mentoring.
In this one day workshop, participants will learn effective techniques that will help them be of most assistance to their mentee, understand when to give advice and when to listen, and how to approach the mentoring relationship.
