Sometimes there is a need to look at what we need to do to develop in ourselves as workers or a specific piece of work we are undertaking. We might experience being stuck with one issue or another that seems to affect our work as well. These moments are a recognition also of what may block us from developing and subsequently making progress in our chosen career paths.

Individuals also take at times, the negative effects too from their past work and relationships or get stuck in one way of working; possibly preventing development in their current and future roles. These effects can become blocks to the overall, continued development of the worker, and thus the overall development of the organisation.This can affect:

  • Networking
  • Promotion
  • Meeting deadlines
  • Interpersonal relationships
  • Giving and receiving constructive criticism
  • Supervision Process
  • Appraisal Process
  • Overall success in doing your job in the way you and others want you to
  • Planning in your career and your own personal future

We may also need someone else we can trust to provide professional support and assistance in the needs we have as a worker. This is generally your manager and is offered in your regular supervision. For others this may be an additional need, arranged and paid for, by the individual or organisation.

Mentoring is a relational, personal, professional, non-managerial, supportive relationship. Mentoring is strategic, helps the individual to forward plan and pre-empt problems, and highlights ways to overcome the 'unique to the individual', work related situations / concerns. In a closed supportive group setting this can also be explored.

Whatever your mentoring needs are, we opt to support you in the most person-centred of ways.

For further information or to arrange an initial appointment, contact us by email to discuss your mentoring needs or interest in a closed group mentoring workshop.
