“Be the change you want to see in the world” (Mahatma Gandhi) is an incredible definition of the mentoring process. Imagine if you could sit down with your future self and ask for advice. You could have some valuable knowledge to share with your current self that would really prepare for what’s to come.
Leadership Mentoring is like holding up a mirror in front of your mentees, helping them recognize their functional or dysfunctional emotions and feelings in a natural manner, enabling them to become aware of and to address their actions and behaviours. A good mentor will know how to draw a mentee out of his comfort zone into more leadership oriented environments and scenarios.
Mentoring is not the same concept as coaching. Mentoring is concerned with the development of the whole person and mentors are focused to provide individual support, growth and maturity to mentees in order to attain their own work/life goals. Mentoring has a positive effect on one’s essential and hard skills and it facilitates socialisation.
