Become a member and you will be eligible to join our highly regarded mentoring programme. Mentoring is recognised as a cost-effective and impactful way to prepare future business leaders. In the past three years 60% of people who participated in a PWN mentoring programme have gone on to achieve their life change goal, including promotions and career changes. Don’t miss out on your opportunity to advance your career!
Mentoring can be for anyone, wherever they happen to be on their career path. A mentor is a person with whom you share your professional situation and sollicit feedback from them regarding your career plans – consider the Mentor as a confidential “sounding board” with whom you can bounce ideas around regarding possible career choices, in a neutral environment outside of your day-to-day workplace. The Mentor is not a coach – in other words she will provide feedback & suggestions regarding your longterm professoinal plans; she will not be guiding you on day-to-day tactical tasks to keep your current job performance on track. That’s what coaches do: focus on short-term results in your current position. Mentoring focuses on mid- to long-term career choices & goals.
Don’t assume, however, that a mentor must always be someone “older & wiser” than you are – a younger person can also mentor an older one – it’s often called “reverse mentoring”. and it can be an amazing mentoring experience as well.
When you ask someone to mentor you, remember to also think about who you could mentor….keep the virtuous circle going!
PWN provides an effective mentoring structure to ensure that you get the most out of your mentoring experience, by calling upon a wide range of mentors, ensuring the best possible match for you, and following up on your progress through the mentoring cycle to ensure that the experience is a positive one. The mentoring programs in PWN’s city networks is cited in surveys as one of the top elements of satisfaction for members of PWN.
Mentoring provides a huge benefit to the “Mentee”, the person who is being mentored, by obtaining a fresh perspective on their career status, aspirations & goals from their Mentor. But did you know that mentoring also provides a significant benefit to the Mentor as well? Many Mentors have commented that their contribution as a Mentor also provided themselves with a positive new way of looking at their own career path, as well as an incentive to reflect on there they themselves were going and how it aligns with their own aspirations & goals. It’s really a “win-win” exchange between Mentee & Mentor.
