Why Mentoring

We are aware of what we have learned.

We can put into practice what we have acquired as knowledge, apart from some basic reflexes that are innate and have been intrinsically established.

All our opinions, assumptions, values and beliefs are the result of learning.

Our opinions, assumptions, values and beliefs influence our thinking and behavior. Since these are the result of learning, the way we think and behave is associated with what we have learned.

We are – in essence – what we have learned so far.

Within the variety of learning and development methods, mentoring stands for efficiency and power.

Mentoring exceeds the "traditional" classroom education / training limitations.

The purpose of mentoring is to support and encourage people to manage their own learning so that they will be able to

  • maximise their potential
  • develop their skills
  • improve their performance
  • become what they want to be
  • Mentoring is the helping device that provides a person (mentor) with the necessary tools to aid another (mentee) to make significant changes in knowledge, work or thinking. The mentor helps the mentee to proceed with these changes, does not do the job for him.

    Mentors enable mentees to learn from previous success and failure. They encourage them to commit to learning what they need to find their own solutions.

    Mentor unleashes mentee’s capacity to

  • solve problems
  • make quality decisions
  • realise the actual dimension of thinks
  • Mentor’s purpose is not to imprint his knowledge on mentee so mentee will accept it unquestionably. The goal is to give mentee the chance to reflect on mentor’s input, to connect and assimilate is, as far as it is related to his own success.

    Success is achieving what we value.

    Many people struggle to achieve objectives and then realise that the results are not those that they wished for in the first place. It happens because their perception of the future is shaped by the others’ expectations – even if it is internally adopted through time.

    Mentor helps mentee to reflect on success meaning. Which are the factors that count? Is it just one factor or more? Are they shallow or deep? While mentee sees all nuances of success, especially his own potential to succeed, understands the different capabilities he has.

    Mentee lays the foundation for a healthier, more complete relationship with his objectives, and finds his way to conquer them.
