Mentoring Skills in the Workplace
Mentoring is about transferring information, competence, and experience to mentees, so that they can make good use of this, and build their confidence accordingly.
As a mentor, you are there to encourage, nurture, and provide support, because you’ve already “walked the path” of the mentee. You need to be the sort of person who wants others to succeed, and have or can develop the skills needed to support them.
