Course Description

Use this training resource with participants working in organisations without a company-wide mentoring scheme to find out about mentoring, and for participants who are senior managers to apply a SWOT analysis to introducing a company-wide mentoring scheme into their organisation. Mentoring can help develop the person in the wider context of their own career aspiration and the organisation's ethos and values, as well as their current experience, knowledge and skills. Mentors can offer mentees experience, distance, balance, perspective and wisdom, in addition to career opportunities and contacts. A mentoring programme is a vital element of a staff development strategy. Participants identify the characteristics of mentoring prior to defining the term 'mentoring'. They continue by exploring the benefits for mentees, including looking at the political implications of forming such a relationship. This is followed by an exercise to write a letter to a chosen mentor emphasising the benefits of mentoring for mentors. In the final exercise, the participants develop a learning contract for mentoring. Alternatively, participants carry out a SWOT analysis for introducing a company-wide mentoring scheme. This alternative is for use with an in-house group of senior managers who need an opportunity to explore what extent mentoring is to be offered as a development opportunity in the organisation.
