Becoming an Effective Mentor

Becoming an Effective Mentor - 3 hours

Mentoring is a powerful practice. It can be learned; and, through discipline and practice, Leaders, Managers and Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) can learn to become truly effective mentors. The fact that 71% of the Fortune 500 companies have mentoring programs is a testament to its power. Mentoring success, however, is not automatic: mentoring relationships can and do fail. Our virtual mentoring programs are designed to increase the success rate and build up the number of accomplished mentoring Leaders and Subject Matter Experts at every level in the organization. These programs can take the form of individual workshops or a series of workshops designed to reinforce mentoring practice and behaviour within the organization. During these highly interactive virtual workshops participants learn the different steps of the mentoring process and through a variety of team exercises, individual exercises, simulations and role plays develop the skills and behaviours that will enable them to become effective mentors .
