What is Mentoring?

Mentoring is a learning relationship, generally focused on long-term career development. The primary purpose is to drive personal growth; building skills, knowledge, and understanding. Mentors may use coaching skills in their conversations, but usually, the mentor role is wider than that of a coach and may include opening doors, making connections and sharing experiences.

Coaching in a business environment is primarily focused on assisting people with their current performance. Rather than the long term, career development focus of mentoring, coaching seeks to enable executives to “get fit” for their current role, or perhaps prepare them for the next.

WHEN TO USE MENTORING

Mentoring is particularly appropriate for increasing employee retention, facilitating cultural shifts and encouraging organisational diversity.

 

It is often used to support talent programs, so that participants get the most they can from their involvement, using a mentor to help them embed learning.

 

Mentoring can also be used to encourage ethical behavior within an organisation.
