Mentoring and collaboration is powerful. It is increasingly becoming in vogue once again and quickly becoming a highly regarded and impactful learning and development strategy for individuals and organisations.
Mentoring creates a learning alliance between two people for transferring professional knowledge and skills, understanding and cultivating industry networks, developing and enhancing individual careers, and creating opportunities to access guidance and support from an experienced professional
However mentoring has moved in and out of favour over the years, but there is no hiding that mentoring works...when it is done right. It can provide a powerful, cost effective and more personalised alternative to traditional face-to-face training for knowledge acquisition and professional development creating real impact.
Yet while a mentoring relationship can be so beneficial, it is reported that few women actually have a mentor. This can be attributed to a range of perceptions and barriers to creating, building and managing a thriving mentoring relationship including some pretty archaic views that mentoring is just reserved for CEOs, 'top talent' and management and leadership levels in business.
Well it's time to change the narrative.
I am passionate about bringing mentoring alive and bringing more choice for females when it comes to their development, career progression and organisational development - regardless of level, status and job role.
