When we offer mentoring, a trusting and respectful relationship develops over time, so that you can rely on support when it is needed, and advice in areas of uncertainty.
Committed managers often spend a great deal of energy mentoring others, with little support themselves, and without any training in mentoring.
With their own mentoring coach, a busy manager can redress the balance of support, and learn from their own experience how to foster mentoring relationships that directly benefit the whole organisation.
Mentoring can increase your ability to:
- Understand how you think, and what motivates your actions
- Know your own needs and tune into the needs of others more quickly
- Distinguish the processes behind what you do from the tasks themselves
- Set your own objectives and goals, and assess your own progress
- Build awareness of your strengths and weaknesses
- Develop new strategies for dealing with old patterns
- Engage fully with your personal and professional development
- Make the best use of your time and energy
- Meet targets with a new mind-set
- Learn how to mentor others
- Balance listening and unconditional regard with objective feedback

‘I highly recommend coaching from
[your coach]. She manages an excellent balance between responding to my experiences of the moment and moving me forward in the acquisition of new skills to deal with complex organisational and interpersonal challenges. The Needs-based coaching framework is a fruitful one and although it takes some time to master, [your coach] is very good at providing case studies and practice opportunities which can be addressed in our phone coaching sessions.’
