Effective Mentors

Mentoring is a journey that mentors and mentees embark on together and both have a responsibility to create a committed, mutually beneficial relationship. Throughout this journey, mentor will help mentee to arrive at desired destination called… professional excellence.
Being a Mentor is about being a Guide, supporter and facilitator, who would not only make mentees comfortable, but also, bring the best out of them. It involves offering wisdom and advice and helping the mentee to progress. Workplace Mentoring is based on a partnership that involves giving both support and challenging opportunities to employees. It facilitates sharing of knowledge, expertise, skills, insights and experiences through dialogue and collaborative learning.
