About this programme


Mentor, coach, consultant, advisor, role model, supporter, guide ... All act in the capacity of strategic advisor, but there is often confusion about how their roles differ and about the relationship they signify. Mentors are seen as guides who offer their wisdom to a mentee; a coach helps someone achieve specific goals in a well- defined context, and consultants work on bringing solutions to specific problems.

Mentoring has been shown to help improve performance, enhance confidence, add motivation and perspective, and develop problem-solving skills, all of which give mentees an overall boost in their professional life and their personal life as well.

Being a great mentor requires a specific skill set; without this skill set, mentoring relationships are likely to fail. Almost anyone can become a better mentor with good training, however. The most successful mentoring relationships are formed when mentor and mentee expectations are aligned, and when each person has the tools to maximize the mentoring opportunity.

Because the skills for mentoring, coaching, and consulting are so similar, the lessons in this course apply to all three.
