Use Mentoring to Extend Training

Use Mentoring to Extend TrainingTraditional training courses still have value, but they have two big weaknesses: They teach skills rather than experience, and they tend to be “one size fits all” processes. If you want to extend the value of the training course, look to a solution that addresses both these issues: Mentoring.

Mentoring is a one-on-one relationship, where each learner (mentoree) is paired up with a more experienced person (mentor). They meet regularly for the mentor to share their experience and guide the mentoree, who asks questions and uses the mentor as a sounding board for their ideas.

A mentor’s role is broadly to share their experience. This makes it different from coaching, which is about asking questions that elicit the mentoree’s own knowledge. It’s also different from sponsorship, where a more senior person backs somebody else in accelerating their career path. In practice there’s often an overlap: Most mentoring relationships include some coaching, and some might even include sponsorship.

The benefits for mentorees are most obvious: They learn new skills, fast-track their development, identify new areas for growth, access new networks, have a sounding board for ideas, explore issues in a safe environment, and develop their career path.

Mentors get benefits as well: They develop listening and coaching skills, enhance their leadership skills, understand people better, stay in touch with other parts of the organisation, and give back to others.

If you don’t already have an active mentoring program in place for your team, do it now! It doesn’t need corporate approval, it doesn’t need extensive resources, and it can make a huge difference for everybody involved in it.

Want to know more about accelerating the experience curve in your team?

There's more in the Development chapter of my book "The Future of Leadership". This chapter looks at what’s available beyond the traditional corporate training course – including shadowing, case studies, facilitation, mentoring, and online training

If you're interested in the future of leadership - and what it means for you - this book is for you.

  1. The Museum signature, with the iconic metallic disc (at 12) is present here too in the replica watches sale and it certainly draws the lineage, but the difference (in a good way) is noticeable and boils down to showing your replica watches personal preference and style. breitling replica sale is every bit a Movado, through and through, while staying traditional to its actual package, obviating your needs to carry a separate fake rolex sale for every setting. This one watch rules out the possibility of a situation mismatch, with its touches of the rolex replica sale classic Movado look. But things this time head a much more technical direction. With 7 jewels within the replica watches sale quartz movement it uses, it’s a dark watch with tons of gleam on the platter.
