Lack of training and preparation can cause uncertainty among the participants about how to be good mentors and mentees, and they may lose their motivation for mentoring.
A thorough introduction and training make both mentors and mentees able to clarify their expectations towards each other and the programme, and to set a clear direction for their learning in the programme.
A shared understanding of mentoring and the strategic purpose of the programme is an important factor for implementing successful mentoring training.
Our structured approach to training mentors and mentees will increase the strategic impact of your mentoring progammes, whether you are focused on
- Accelerating growth of high potentials and building pipelines.
- Increasing mobility across organisational and geographical boundaries.
- Developing key leadership skills - e.g. the skill of developing talents.
- Promoting a culture of well-being and inclusion.
- Enhancing the value of the employer brand.
The Mentor+Game™ - a powerful tool for increasing the impact of your mentoring
The Mentor+Game™ is a key tool for training mentors and mentees. We use it in all our mentoring training activities. This innovative and engaging game – based on the 10 situational mentor roles – will help clarify the situational mentor roles and how each role can be used to address specific mentee needs.

We offer Mentor Masterclasses around specific key skills and challenges that mentors may face in their mentoring relationships. We can deliver these as standard sessions or design tailormade solutions; and we can create a package of interlinked masterclasses to create a tailormade mentor training programme for your mentors. Masterclasses can be tailored to new mentors as well as provide experienced mentors with advanced training.
