Mentorship Programmes: How it works

The mentoring programme then allows you and your mentor to start building a trusting working relationship through a series of reflective discussions about the mentor’s personal experience and how it can assist you in achieving your goals.

These topics include:

  • Performance
  • Confidence
  • Abilities
  • Knowledge
  • Experience

This allows you to create your own focused action plans to meet pre-determined performance goals.

Your personal mentor is selected through recruiting an external
expert with the relevant experience and knowledge, or structuring an internal mentoring programme, whereby a suitable mentor is selected
from within your organisation.

At Maestro Performance, we carefully evaluate your unique requirements to create a business mentoring programme that suits your organisation best.

  2. How do I start a mentoring programme in my organisation?
    The best way to start a business mentoring programme is to determine what you want to achieve from the exercise. 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. It is also a good idea to track the progress of your business mentoring programme through the use of performance indicators and goals achieved. At Maestro Performance, we do all of this for you.

  3. How long will a mentoring programme take to complete?
    The length of a business mentoring programme depends on the purpose of the programme, your staff 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.
