Mentorship Program

 

My job is not to be easy on people. My job is to take these great people we have and to push them and make them even better.” – Steve Jobs

 

What is mentorship?

Mentorship is a protected relationship in which a more knowledgeable or experienced person guides and nurtures the professional development or growth of another, outside the normal manager/subordinate line management. Its focus goes beyond learning specific competencies or tasks and builds a climate of trust so the mentee can feel secure to seek advice on issues impacting their professional success.

 

Who should be a mentor?

By definition, a mentor is a more experienced or knowledgeable person who guides and nurtures the development of a less experienced person. However, mentors are not necessarily more senior than the people they mentor.

Being a mentor provides you the opportunity to:

  • Improve your management skills
  • Learn about the perspectives and views of others
  • Impart your knowledge and experience to someone who will benefit
