Mentoring Skills True North Learning’s “Mentoring Skills” program provides individual managers and leaders with the skills to mentor and coach within the organisation.
With managers expected to develop and retain their talent, there is a growing focus on internal coaching and mentoring with organisations. This aligns with a change in the emphasis of their role from “manager as expert” to “manager as coach”, shifting from simply providing answers and advice to mentoring direct reports so as to build their capacity within their role.
How it works:Mentoring is a management skill that requires training, experience and support to be effective. We work with your nominated mentors to improve individual mentoring skills and build a support structure so that a consistent approach is delivered and maximum benefits are returned.
What it delivers:The True North Learning program will, using proven Experiential Learning methodologies, develop individual managers or leaders to become an internal coach to direct reports. The program will deliver:
