Prepare to Mentor: An online course for new mentors
Fast track your mentoring practice and your mentoring career
This course will help you develop essential mentor skills so that you feel super confident in your role as a mentor and know how to foster a meaningful mentoring relationship with your mentee.
The course is six weeks, made up of six modules that step you through the fundamentals of mentoring and provide plenty of opportunities for you to practice using a range of mentoring tools and strategies. Throughout the course you receive individualised support and feedback from Lesley to help you apply your learning as you develop your mentor practice.
One to One
Now that you have finished the online ‘preparation’ course, keep developing your skills and practice through continued mentoring support from me.
One to One is an individualised programme of mentoring support that provides you with an opportunity to examine your self-leadership skills, challenge your thinking and continue to build your mentoring capability. We meet once a month over a six-month period where we discuss all things mentoring, in particular what is happening in your practice.
If you are serious about reaching that level of aspirational mentor (remember the mentor’s value ladder in Module One?), getting ongoing mentoring for yourself is optimal.
Contact me to find out more about my One to One programme and how you can get started – well, actually, continue. I’d love to keep working with you.
