    WHAT IS MENTORING?

    "Mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning in order that they may maximize their potential, develop their skills, improve their performance and become the person they want to be." Eric Parsloe,

    Mentoring is a powerful personal development and empowerment tool. It is an effective way of helping people to progress in their careers and is becoming increasing popular as its potential is realized. It is a partnership between two people (mentor and mentee) normally working in a similar field or sharing similar experiences. It is a helpful relationship based upon mutual trust and respect.

    A mentor is a guide who can help the mentee to find the right direction and who can help them to develop solutions to career issues. Mentors rely upon having had similar experiences to gain an empathy with the mentee and an understanding of their issues. Mentoring provides the mentee with an opportunity to think about career options and progress.

    A mentor should help the mentee to believe in herself and boost her confidence. A mentor should ask questions and challenge, while providing guidance and encouragement. Mentoring allows the mentee to explore new ideas in confidence. It is a chance to look more closely at yourself, your issues, opportunities and what you want in life. Mentoring is about becoming more self-aware, taking responsibility for your life and directing your life in the direction you decide, rather than leaving it to chance.

    Mentor`s SET's brand of mentoring is person focused. It is less of a formalized professional relationship and more of a partnership; more like a friendship. We provide guidelines and training for our mentors and mentees, but the issues discussed will vary depending upon the issues being faced by the mentee.

    Benefits of Mentoring   

    1. The employee feels supported and has a mechanism for working through any problems that exist as a result of being in a minority
    1. Women often – but not always – feel more comfortable being mentored by another woman
    2. Women mentors are uniquely placed to understand the issues faced by other women in engineering, taking into account the specific issues and challenges experienced
    3. Mentoring includes training, support, encouragement, advice and guidance from people who have both 'done it before' and are usually independent of the mentee’s current organisation
    4. Both the mentees and mentors gain confidence and leadership skills
    5. Mentees report the benefits of a different perspective
    6. Mentees are more likely to plan and apply for promotions
    7. Mentors and mentees can gain insights into best business practices in other companies
    8. The process allows mentors and mentees to make useful networking connections, and have access to role models
    9. Mentees will find it easier to return to engineering after a career break
    10. The mentors and mentees belong to wider networks.

     

    Mentoring is a brain to pick, an ear to listen, and a push in the right direction.-John Crosby-
