Mentoring - Using Knowledge and Experience to Develop Others
Mentoring is a process in which one person supports and lends his/her experience, perspective and knowledge to proffer advice and guidance to another of differing (and not necessarily less) experience in his/her professional performance and development. There is no one size that fits all:-
Successful mentoring secures the transfer of experience and perspectives not only intra-departmentally, but also across differing areas of the business. It is a relationship through which the differing perspectives and experiences of a Mentor in a particular field or situation can be shared and called upon, notably in what is by its very nature an informal and confidential process.
