Personal and Professional Development

  • To put something back into the system
  • To help a less experienced colleague progress (“if only I'd known then what I know now”)
  • Increased job and personal satisfaction - the rewards of seeing someone you've helped progress and succeed are immeasurable
  • Transferable skills development, to assist career progression
  • The mentoring relationship enables you to:

- develop strengths (yours and theirs)

- check assumptions (yours and theirs)

- clarify misunderstandings (yours and theirs)

- work with people from different contexts and backgrounds

- practise offering positive and constructive feedback

- generate workable solutions together in a mutually respectful way

- motivate, advise and support whilst empowering someone to make their own decisions and take responsibility for their own actions and development
