Becoming a Mentor
Our mentors bring a range of business experience to the Group and each person has their own style and approach.
By its nature, mentoring is about establishing a relationship. Each mentoring relationship is unique and created by the two participants. However, in our experience, mentors can:
Listen to issues
Give practical suggestions
Offer alternative approaches,
Share access to other sources of support or ideas
Provide introductions to other organisations where appropriate
Help set priorities and action plans
The position as a trusted aide outside the established reporting structure enables mentors to advise on issues such as dealing with trustees, managing performance, or handling pressure from funders.
The Chapters are informal groupings of 18-20 people, and each is chaired by one of the founding members of the Group. We organise bi-annual meetings for each Chapter so that mentors can share their experiences, benefit from the advice of other mentors and meet other people in the Group.
We aim to keep the Group deliberately informal and, once matched, mentors and mentees are free to structure their relationship to fit their needs and styles, as well as the frequency and scope of conversations.
