Mentoring & Coaching
Increasing performance & success in mentoring relationships
Giving opportunities for individuals to engage in a mentoring relationship, means you’re successfully creating the ability to enable a further share of skills across departments within the business.
A mentoring program is designed around a relationship that will lead to further individual career growth and focus. It should strengthen both knowledge and skills and build further and future capability.
To be successful, it should be implemented for the medium to long term, as the relationship built between the mentor and mentee is one that should grow & develop over time.
