Training and support for Mentors & Mentees

An online multi-media application for training and support of people in mentoring relationships. Users may be part of a formal structured program, or they may have connected informally.

Art of Mentoring is suitable for organisations that want to improve the quality and effectiveness of mentoring relationships between their employees or members, and who want to provide high quality training and support at low cost. It is also suitable for organisations that want to build the leadership capacity of their managers, by giving them essential coaching and mentoring skills. There is a mentee and mentor version.

How it works?

Participants receive login details for Art of Mentoring from their organisation, valid for 12 months. Once they login, they are taken to the Horizons Unlimited Learning Management System and then directed to the course.

The training uses a combination of instruction, mentoring demonstrations, interviews with experienced mentors and mentees, reading materials, exercises and tools and forms to download.

The multi-media format is engaging, easy to follow and most importantly, simple and easy to use. There are 5 modules, each of 10-20 minutes duration (online time). Participants can set aside five short sessions to take the training, at times that suit them, or complete the training in one session. If they access all the other resources they will receive an additional 1-2 hours of instruction.

“The training is designed to help both new mentors get started, and to equip even experienced mentors with new perspectives, skills and tools that will make their mentoring much more effective.”

WHY HAVE TRAINING FOR MENTEES AND MENTORS?

Without training, only one in three mentoring relationships, on average, are effective. Training mentors doubles the success rate. Training mentees as well increases effectiveness even more again. There are very few managers who have the skills to be good mentors, and very few indeed who are great mentors. Training gives all participants the skills they need for an effective mentoring relationship, and ensures that expectations are aligned.

Many organisations however, either do not realise the importance of training, try to do the training themselves with poor quality materials, or do not have sufficient budgets to support
face-to-face training, especially when participants span geographies. Art of Mentoring provides good quality, low cost training, accessible from the participant’s desktop.

WHO HAS PRODUCED THIS TRAINING?

Horizons Unlimited has designed and implemented mentoring programs for organisations for nearly twenty years. Art of Mentoring was created by our mentoring expert, Melissa Richardson, with course adviser Prof David Clutterbuck, a world-renowned researcher, author and consultant on mentoring and coaching. The people that appear in our videos are experienced mentors or mentees and demonstrations of mentoring conversations use real mentoring scenarios.

“Our material is based on well researched mentoring practices and many years of working in the field.”
