Mentors need continuous development and reflection on their mentoring practice to increase their awareness and skills in the mentor role. Our Mentor+ Masterclasses are uniquely designed for mentors, and each masterclass focuses on developing the mentor's skills within one specific topic.
Each Mentor+ Masterclass will provide:
- One or more new tools/approaches for being an effective mentor.
- Social learning - reflecting on own mentor practice and use of the new tool(s) with the other participants.
- Reflective space for gaining more self-awareness in the mentor role.
Mentor+ Masterclasses can be applied as a stand-alone activity for mentors or for leaders who would like to increase their skills for developing their direct reports, or the masterclasses can be integrated into a mentoring programme to increase the quality and outcome of the programme.

Mentor+ Masterclass: Harnessing Personal Values
Every individual has a unique set of personal values, which helps them to understand who they are and what motivates them. Your values are affected by your culture, upbringing and life experiences, among other factors.
In general, people are highly motivated to act in ways that express their values. If they are for some external reasons forced to act against their values, this will impact their well-being and motivation negatively. Therefore, understanding each other’s values is important in the mentor/mentee relationship to create a healthy and respectful approach to each other and a solid foundation for learning from and with each other. Likewise, awareness of your own values, and being consistent and transparent around them will contribute to greater acceptance and appreciation among employees and will lubricate the social fabric within the organisation.
This masterclass will provide mentors with insight into their own core values as well as an approach to help their mentees identify their own values and how these values influence their perception of themselves, their decisions and their behaviours.
What you will gain from this masterclass:
- Increased understanding of values and the different kinds of values.
- Opportunity to explore the link between values and behaviours.
- Identify your own core values and their practical applications in a 5 step process.
- Confidence to apply the learning with own mentee and direct reports.
Format and time to complete: This masterclass includes prework (an e-learning module) of approx. 30 minutes and an online workshop of 2 hours, with presentation, plenary discussion and breakouts.
