Mentoring Skills

Being a mentor to a new recruit and passing on valuable skills, information, advice and insight is both a valuable business asset and very rewarding.

Mentoring is essentially a relationship between two people, the mentor and the mentee and the benefits for the mentee are wide-reaching, including –

  • Self-confidence and self-supporting
  • Clearer career direction and advancement
  • Increased self-awareness
  • Understanding the corporate ethos
  • Learning new skills and competencies
  • How to be more productive

At Vital Minds Business Training, our Mentoring Skills workshops look at both Developmental Mentoring, where the mentor aids the professional development of the mentee with specific actions, as well as Sponsorship Mentoring, where the mentor treats the mentee as more of a protégé.

To become a mentor, we will give you the tools and techniques that will enable you to make a real and lasting difference to the life and career of those under your wing but you need to make a commitment –

  • Do you have the will to want to help?
  • Are you assured and confident without being arrogant or egotistical?
  • Are you committed to your own personal development?
  • Are you asking questions that make the mentee think for themselves?
  • Are you listening to what’s being said and responding accordingly?
  • Is the mentee getting the right feedback?

As a mentor, you are afforded an amazing opportunity to add real value to someone’s life. By passing on not just advice and guidance, but also corporate information, ways of doing things and how to get from point A to point B career-wise, you reduce your business’s attrition rate, increase productivity and add to your bottom line.
