Mentoring is a valuable way of gaining new outlooks and ideas on the future, and of creating a new work-life balance.
Opportunities for growth and development are increased for the mentee because the mentor offers a new, fresh, independent perspective: Independent of the mentee’s organization and culture.
The aim of a mentoring program is to help the mentee set realistic, achievable goals along the route towards the best possible leadership and personal development, the mentor contributing as a neutral partner to the dialogue. Mentors create harmony and balance in the mentee’s life, their plans and their whole living situation.
Our prime tool is the confidential, inspiring and structured dialogue between the mentor and the mentee.
When sensitive issues have to be tackled or difficult decisions made, being able to throw ideas around with a mentor delivers substantially more mature judgments and reflections. Mentoring provides advanced support and career planning to those in, and aspiring to, leadership positions.
The word ’mentor’ is from Greek mythology. Odysseus made his friend and advisor Mentor a stand-in father figure, advisor and – yes, mentor, to his own son Telemachos.
The foundation of effective mentoring is the rich and insightful dialogue between mentor and mentee. Our mentors have many years consulting experience and have advised and supported managers at many different levels within many different industries. Our mentoring is fully customized and adapted to the mentee’s and organization’s priorities and needs.
All mentoring begins by clearly defining the roles and expectations the mentee and the mentor have of each other.
At the heart of our mentoring is an open, honest and confidential partnership.
