Developing people & teams to pick
Duration of the course: One day
Mentoring is to support and encourage people
to manage their own learning in order that they may maximize
their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance
and become the person they want to be; it plays a key role in
developing one's career. The manager-employee relationship
focuses on achieving the objectives of the department and the
company. A mentor-mentee relationship focuses on developing the
mentee professionally and personally. The roles of manager and
mentor are fundamentally different. That’s why structured
mentoring programs never pair mentors with their direct reports.
True mentoring is more than just answering occasional questions
or providing ad hoc help. It is about an ongoing relationship of
learning, dialogue, and challenge. "Mentoring" is a process that
always involves communication and is relationship based upon
mutual trust and respect..
This workshop aims to provide a pool of knowledge and
understanding to anyone interested in the topic of mentoring. It
will also equip participants with practical tools that will help
to master the skills as mentor, or interest as mentee. Why do
organizations implement formal mentoring programs? Organizations
recognize that workforce demographics have changed dramatically
in recent years, as women and members of different minority
groups have joined the workforce in greater numbers.
In addition, technology has automated traditional employee
functions and continues to affect on-the-job performance,
altering the way people see themselves within the corporate
structure. With these changes, organizations are finding it
difficult to recruit and retain qualified personnel. On the plus
side, organizations find today’s employees exhibit a more
flexible approach to work. On the minus side, employees may feel
less loyalty to the organizations for which they work.
Organizations now look to mentoring to implement a strategic
game plan that includes: Recruitment, Retention, Professional
development and Development of a multicultural workforce.
