Mentoring is quickly becoming one of the most essential skills for organisations seeking to improve their management capability. The benefits for managers being mentored are obvious and well proven. But for experienced managers, whether employed directly or in an advisory role, there are also rewards: Being a mentor gives you the opportunity to help someone think about their options, set personal goals and stay focused in the pursuit of those goals. As a good Mentor you will provide inspiration, support, and build confidence.
This event, a collaboration between the Chartered Management Institute and University Campus Aylesbury Vale, is designed for individuals new to mentoring, as well as experienced mentors wishing to develop their skills to a higher level. As well as covering an overview of the key skills needed by a mentor, delegates will also be given an opportunity to try them out in a safe environment. The event will conclude with an overview of the CMI’s management mentoring system and will allow ample opportunities for networking and collaborative action planning with other delegates.
The session will be interactive, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions and share your own experiences mentoring with other mentors at all levels of experience.
