Effective manager programme


You will have a breadth and depth of experience in your chosen field with a successful track record in a related discipline to the work of those you will be mentoring.

Strictly speaking it is not necessary to be a Manager grade to mentor effectively. Employers may wish to nominate non-Managerial staff who have achieved professional credibility within the organisation – subject specialists, for example.


Effective Organisational Development starts with nurturing home-grown talent and running proper succession planning cycles rather than hiring costly expertise to plug skills shortages. Being a mentor is a rewarding and motivational role that develops transferable life skills in real-time for both the mentor and mentee. 

At the end of the workshop you will:

  • Know what mentoring is and how it differs from management supervision, coaching and counseling be committed to being a ‘best practitioner’

  • Have heightened awareness of common problems associated with mentoring

  • Have developed your practical skills in relation to being an effective mentor in a safe and supportive environment. For instance, confidence to make interventions ‘in the moment’ that will benefit the mentee

  • Have identified a personal plan of action to close any skills gaps or knowledge in this area


  • What is mentoring? – definition and conditions

  • Working as a mentor – commitment and rewards

  • The mentor/mentee relationship

  • Lifecycle, roles, responsibilities and ground rules  

  • Getting the most from mentoring contact

  • Embedding a mentoring culture across the organisation
