Being a Successful Mentor

Hi Everyone

I'm just going to copy and paste below a description of an exciting new webinar coming up. Click on the link below to jump to the Events Calendar and register:


The session is brought to you from the fantastically talented team that brings you the CPD and Career Advice hub. 

Here is some information about the webinar:

Traditionally mentoring has been the preserve of the wise, sage, older manager offering pearls of their wisdom to a younger inexperienced and impressionable colleague, helping shape their future. And whilst this still applies, mentoring has moved into the 21st century. Bolstered by peer and reverse mentoring, we now know that it is one of the most flexible and powerful tools in the learning and development arsenal.

But despite that many mentors find themselves unexpectedly (and sometimes without want it) thrust into the role with an expectation that they will muddle through.

The webinar is 30-minutes, so we can only achieve a few miracles in that time, but having trained lots of people in mentoring and acted as a mentor, Sarah Hobbs of Talent & Potential has a store of her usual practical advice to make the job much easier including a very useful resource kit that will be shared with the attendees.

Hosted by Phil Purver of TWM, if you want to take your own role as a mentor seriously or you need some quick advice to be more effective, then please join in.
