Mentoring - application and advantages

In Poland, mentoring is still quite a novelty. Meanwhile in the world aWith70% of Fortune 500 companiesuses mentoring as a method of development for its employees. Mentoring is more of a partnership approach to finding solutions than coaching.

 

Some large companies in Poland have their own mentoring programs between employees. I fill the gap where there is no such program or you are simply looking for someone from outside your environment who could become your mentor. Bring a fresh and different perspective.

Mentoring and coaching - similarities and differences

One of the fundamental differences between mentoring and coaching is that the mentor not only asks questions, but also actively helps the mentee find answers. It provides him with knowledge and shares his practical experience when he misses an important opportunity or risk in his search.

On the other hand, mentoring is a more personal and relationship-oriented form of cooperation than business consultinge. 

 

Working with a mentor is a great way to develop your competences and provide great support on the way to your dream goal.

Business mentoring - how to find a good mentor?

Create a list of potential mentors

If you are part of a larger organization, it is worth looking around for a mentor internally. Make a list of people, that you are currently following. Think about why this is happening: maybe you identify with their career path, way of thinking and achieving goals and values. You may be asking yourself "how did they achieve/do this?". Someone who has already been where you are going, or someone who naturally inspires you, is a good place to start to build a list of potential mentors.

However, a mentor coming directly from the environment in which you currently operate is not the only option. Often where you are going and what you want to achieve beyond the environment, w which you are currently staying.That is why it is worth using the help and services of an external mentor. be Maybe Your list should include people who have knowledge, successes (but also important - they are not afraid to talk about failures!) in the subject, which is important to you at this stage of life.  

What should a good mentor be like?

However, not every person you admire is automatically a good mentor. It is worth knowing and using specific techniques of building relationships and cooperation between the mentor and the mentee. This was also the case in my case: I noticed that, among other things,mentoring training The Bhr Organization Ltd i CoachWiseand of course years of work as a mentor within international corporations and as an external mentor, they allow me to help my mentee better, broader and more effectively. 

A good mentor is someone who constantly learns, develops, and also draws a lot of knowledge and conclusions from  relationship with your mentee!

Individual metoring meetings: trust your intuition 

First meetings with a mentor of your choice is the so-called calibration period. This is the time for your personal and real verification whether the mentor's competences, personality and manner of communication build a sense of trust in you. Honesty, dialogue and a clear framework of what you want to work on with a mentor are the basis for the success of a mentoring relationship.  

 

choosing for yourself mentor, focus not only on similarities between you.

One of the goals (and successes) of mentoring is thatwrap your potential. In order for this to happen, you must discoveries limiting you beliefs, and then, with the help of a mentor, expand your "field of vision" with new options, solutions and possibilities.

To start making changes in your life, all you need is self-awareness and a willingness to develop. Just so much and so much.  But the road to the goal itself is not necessarily short and straight. Specific knowledge, a companion and an experienced advisor will be useful on this journey.
