Expert Mentor Program​

Supporting leaders to maximise their ability to guide and develop others through mentoring​

Put simply, mentoring is a relationship that aims to offer new perspective to someone who is looking to grow and develop their skills. There is much research into the benefits of mentoring and the practice has been shown to increase employee engagement and satisfaction, enhance professional development, aid leadership success and reduce attrition. Senior leaders in particular, consistently attribute the role of mentors in their success.
Good mentors have no agenda other than assisting their mentees in reaching their own goals. They aim to provide a safe, confidential space for their mentees to explore new ideas, and an unbiased sounding board to test their assumptions. 
Mentors require skills in facilitating learning – both their own and others. Mentoring is not only about ‘imparting knowledge and wisdom’, it is about meeting the mentee where they are and partnering with them from that place.
The Expert Mentor Program (EMP) has been designed to assist current and aspiring mentors to maximise their approach, in order to provide meaningful professional and personal growth to their mentees.​


Mentoring is a relationship that  aims to offer new perspective to someone who is looking to grow and develop their skills.​

While a mentoring relationship is primarily intended to benefit the mentee, the mentor also has much to gain in experience, confidence and knowledge. For the mentor, the relationship can be equally as beneficial as it is fulfilling.​
