Aims

This 1-day course comes in two parts and is designed for those who wish to become an effective and inspirational mentor in the workplace as well as those who will be mentored (mentoree).

Objectives

On completion of session 1, attendees will be equipped with understanding of the role of a mentor and be provided with the skills to enter and establish a new mentoring relationship; to the benefit to the mentee and the organisation.

On completion of session 2, attendees will be equipped with understanding of the role of a mentoree and have clear expectations of what is expected of them. In addition, they will be able to assess if the relationship is working and ideally create a mentoring cycle by motivating them to, in the future, become mentors themselves.

How we deliver

Training can be delivered at your offices in either of the following ways:

  • Online

    Online training is ideal if you have staff in different geographical locations who have the same Microsoft or Adobe training requirements.

    Our expert trainers can deliver Watch and Learn sessions to up to 100 people. Alternatively, they can produce an interactive session that allows delegates to complete practical exercises within the Microsoft or Adobe apps of your choosing.

  • Face to face

    Choose from one or half day training sessions or our popular 90-minute Sprint sessions, which can be delivered in your offices or at another location of your choice.

    All we need is a room with a table and chairs and we look after the rest. We can even provide laptops and a projector should you not have spare IT equipment to use.
