What is mentoring?

A mentor is a trusted and experienced advisor who trains and counsels newer, younger or less experienced people. They offer advice or guidance to someone, understanding when to listen and let someone work through their own difficulties.

What are the benefits of mentoring?

Mentoring is shown to develop individuals within a company at senior and low levels.  It increases employee motivation, job performance and retention rates.  For managers it multiplies the impact of any change and also prepares the new leaders for the complexity of the challenges they will face.

How is it different from coaching?

Mentoring is a supportive process to help someone as they undertake a journey.  Coaching is about preparing someone for a future event, such as an exam, a journey, transition or even a game.



Many mentors have amazing skills in their area of expertise, however lack the underlying psychology of what it means to be a mentor and the process around that.  I founded The Mentoring School to meet that need.
