Being a mentor can be one of the most rewarding experiences for leaders. As a mentor, you will support others by providing a safe, confidential space for them to explore new ideas, and an unbiased sounding board to test their assumptions. And in turn, you’ll benefit from personal reflection, enhanced communication skills, and a sense of satisfaction in assisting others.
Develop mentoring skills to pay it forward to the next generation
The Expert Mentor Program has been designed to equip leaders with the confidence and ability to be effective mentors. Guided by experts with practical mentoring experience, participants will explore the mindsets and approaches needed to create meaningful outcomes for their mentees.
A mentoring relationship is truly a win-win experience. Mentors experience improved communication skills and leadership capabilities. Mentoring challenges you to reflect on your experiences, re-examine your existing knowledge base and validate your expertise. And the relationship can also offer a fresh perspective on your own ideas and provide a genuine sense of fulfilment.
