Manager As Mentor

In an ideal world all managers would be mentoring, but the reality is many don’t. Why?

Perhaps they don’t see it as a priority

Maybe they don’t see the value

Quite likely, they are not sure how to change to a mentoring style

If you want to change their views, behaviour and skills you’ll need to begin with educating them. Here’s how:

A purchase once, use for ever resource that you can use for as many participants as you wish, as often as you wish, within your program. Drawn from 30 year’s experience working with executives, Manager as Mentor learning modules help build the advanced skills and knowledge to build mentoring behaviours.

How it Works

  1. I supply self-paced learning materials: an overview of the topic and why it’s important, plus a package of content to view in a short video, read as an ebook and process as discussion questions.
  1. After managers have consumed the material, you lead a live learning event. You might run a webinar, video/teleconference or a face-to-face workshop.
  1. Follow-up with your own in-house forum, online Q&A or network.
