Mentoring

Investing in organisational mentoring is an impactful and cost-effective way of developing your emerging talent, transferring knowledge and keeping your high performers engaged. Mentoring is a developmental partnership where one person shares knowledge, skills, information and perspective developed over years of experience, to foster the personal and professional growth of another individual.

There is a difference between mentoring and coaching. Coaches use a process of skilful inquiry to assist the client in identifying learning opportunities and developing problem-solving capabilities. Mentors have experience in a field, position or industry and provide more directive, individualised support.
