Mentoring in the workplace

Mentoring in the workplace is different from coaching in that the mentor shares personal knowledge and experiences and guides the mentee in what to do. Where a coach rarely shares personal experiences with the coachee, mentoring in the workplace enables a mentor to share personal successes and practical advice based on his/her past experiences with the mentee throughout the mentoring programme.

This facilitates:

  • Quick learning

  • True potential discovery in employees

  • An effective method of combating growing skill shortagesthrough accelerated development with support and guidance

Business mentoring by Maestro Performance helps you realise
your true potential.

Once you have your set your business mentoring programme goals, it is time to match you up with the best mentor for the job. This can be achieved through internal recruitment, or searching for an experienced mentor outside of the company. Once the right person has been found for the business mentoring programme, you have to facilitate regular meetings with your mentor in order to make the business mentoring programme sustainable and effective.

  3. How long will a mentoring programme take to complete?
    The length of a business mentoring programme depends on the purpose of the programme, and the goals that have been set. If the mentoring programme is designed to introduce experienced new staff into a role at work, you may only need a mentor for a short time. However, if the your business mentoring programme has been designed to train an existing, inexperienced employee to move into a more senior role, the business mentoring programme will need to run until the employee has achieved the pre-determined goals.
