Mentoring offers the best of both worlds – you give and receive. When implemented flexibly, with an eye toward the balance of personal and organisational goals, mentorship can yield tangible and mutually rewarding results for benefactors and beneficiaries alike.
Mentoring is gaining momentum as a professional development approach. The impact and value of mentorship exponentially increase when it becomes one of many tools in your development toolbox. Used in conjunction with other activities including, coaching, shadowing, peer to peer training and formal training, mentoring complements the more comprehensive approach to career mobility and learning and development.
