The IECL offers bespoke mentoring programs for organisations. The role of the mentor is to provide insight, and to guide and advise you in your development to reach your highest potential. Mentors typically assume the role of the wise adviser based on their own personal/professional experience and may act as a mentor on long or a short term basis. The mentor is not usually responsible for a mentee’s performance, but through experience can help fast track their learning, provide valuable insights, and support them to avoid the pitfalls in their current or new role.

Are you seeking a mentor for yourself or a colleague? A mentor is someone with the experience and expertise to help you achieve greater clarity around your role and career direction. Mentoring can also help you to achieve a particular business outcome. Or perhaps you are looking for a mentor to support someone in your organisation? A skilled mentor understands both your organisation’s needs and those of the mentee as an individual. Click here to find a mentor.

How Does Mentoring Differ From Coaching?
Ideally a mentor has experience in your field of practice, so they can guide you based on their own experience. A mentor is usually older and wiser; they have “been there and done that” and you can benefit from their previous experience. A coach, however, is not a subject matter expert necessarily, but is expert in the process of coaching; asking the right questions and challenging you to achieve your highest potential.
